The following letter delivered to residents (Hamilton Avenue)
The letter is dated 11/02/2019 but consultation survey does not yet appear to be available. So no further details. Not too much cycle specific in this other than cyclists being allowed to travel southbound through the no entry London Road/Hamilton Avenue plug.

Proposed Windsor Avenue area consultation surrey SM5 2JG
The Cheam North and Worcester Park Local Committee has agreed to consult residents in the Windsor Avenue area on proposals to improve the environment for residents,
pedestrians, cyclists and users of public transport. The aim of the scheme is to encourage more people to walk, cycle or use public transport instead of using their car for local journeys.
This year there is funding available from Transport for London to carry out a consultation with residents on a few measures that have already been highlighted as an issue by some residents and the local schools and to ask if there are any other measures residents would like us to consider to improve your neighbourhood.
The proposals as shown on the attached plan includes -
- Introduce a 20mph speed limit area to reduce vehicle speeds;
- Introduce a zebra crossing in Molesey Drive outside Cheam Park Farm Infant school to provide an improved crossing point;
- Introduce a no entry plug in Hamilton Avenue at the junction of London Road to reduce the cut through traffic using Hamilton Avenue in a southbound direction.
Please respond to these preliminary proposals via our on-line consultation questionnaire which can be found at:
The on-line consultation will also ask if you have any other ideas to help improve the environment in your area that can be investigated and considered for future phases. Alternatively you can respond to this consultation by letter by sending your comments to the address shown. Replies need to be received by Friday 15th March 2019.
You will be notified of the outcome of this consultation by another letter circulated in due course.

Two phases firstly to the West of Manor Road / London (Wallington), the second to the East.
It looks like an Uber fleet of 14 economical buses.
We will then report on the outcome ahead of the launch of the 12 month trial.
It should be noted that as a research trial, collecting feedback from users as well as other groups to understand feedback from non-users too will continue throughout the 12 month trial.

What are we proposing?
This is a trial service that does not have a fixed route or schedule, but ‘responds’ to the request to be picked up by the customer. It can be booked at the desired time of travel, primarily through an app, and provide real time updates to customers of vehicle arrival time and guarantees a seat for confirmed bookings.
The service will run using up to eight Mercedes Cityline Low floor Sprinter 14 seater vehicles. The vehicles will be Euro VI compliant bringing them in line with the Ultra Low Emission Zone vehicle standards, and will be fully wheelchair accessible.

With the fourth highest car ownership levels in London, and residents telling us that parking is a major and growing concern, our Parking Strategy aims to improve local parking and traffic situations across the borough.
Our parking consultation will be rolled out in three phases, with each phase covering different locations across the borough. This Stage 1 Parking Consultation kicks off the second phase, where we'll be consulting with some residents in the Sutton South, Cheam & Belmont and Carshalton & Clockhouse Local Committee areas, as shown in the map below.
Responses to this Parking Survey will help us understand about parking on your street. Whether you have parking problems or not, we’d like to hear from you as all feedback will be fed into parking and traffic management proposals being made for your street.

- Removing the existing access into Tweeddale Road from Wrythe Lane. It is proposed to create new access from Thornton Road across the green space. This will help to reduce vehicle conflicts and provide better pedestrian routes.
- Converting the closed section of Tweeddale Road to grassed area as shown on the plan in green hatch lines.
- A raised table is proposed at the new entry into Tweeddale Road to provide a level crossing for pedestrians and to help with slowing down traffic speeds.
The Carshalton and Clockhouse Local Committee has agreed to consult residents in the Beeches Avenue / Stanley Park Road / Warnham Court Road area on proposals to reduce the speed of traffic and improve the environment for residents, pedestrians and cyclists. The aim of the scheme is to encourage more people to walk, cycle or use public transport and reduce the number of local car trips. Funding for this scheme is available from Transport for London.
Notified of the following TMO on 28 November 2018
The London Borough of Sutton are proposing to make Traffic Management Orders as detailed in the attached public notice reference SL1058.
If you wish to view all the statutory documents and make any representations on the proposals please select the link below. Your representations will need to be with us by Thursday 20 December 2018.
The principal objective of the Order The Sutton (Speed Limit) (20mph) (Butter Hill Area) (No.*) Order 201* is to improve the environment for both pedestrians and cyclists by introducing a 20mph speed limit.
The general effect of the Order will be to introduce a 20mph zone in Arcadia Close; Burleigh Avenue; Butter Hill; Caledon Road; Curran Avenue; Devonshire Road; Elm Grove Parade; Leechcroft Road; Lyndon Avenue; Parkfields Close; St Mary Avenue; Vellum Drive; Victoria Avenue; and Westcroft Road between No. 54 and Manor Road North.
Merton Council are consulting on their new Local Plan 2020, which will be used as the basis for planning decisions in the future. Planning decisions are one of the ways in which cycling policies are put into practice, so it's really important that the Local Plan incorporates strong commitments to cycling and active transport.
Merton Cycle Campaign will use the comments and discussion here to incorporate into our response to the Merton Consultation which closes 6 January; however to give us time to incorporate your comments please submit them here by noon on Sunday 30 December.
The council is undertaking a public consultation on its draft third Local Implementation Plan (LIP). This is a statutory document that outlines how Sutton will contribute to meeting the outcomes and objectives in the new Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy, published earlier this year. It also outlines key proposals for transport schemes in the borough for the next three years (to 2021) and longer term ambitions to 2041.
Quite a few improvements to junctions, change to the flow of one way, improvements and extension of 20mph zone and removal of speed cushions
Details of Proposed Improvements
The proposed improvements include the following main features, as detailed on the attached Plan Overview:
A. Width restrictions with priority give-ways to replace existing refuge islands, and speed cushions. (refer to details 3,4,11 &12)
There have been several complaints regarding noise and vibration associated with vehicles (especially buses and large vehicles) driving at speed over the cushions. Parents have expressed a sense of vulnerability while crossing at the refuge islands. The existing carriageway width do not allow widening of the refuge islands, which would be the ideal solution, and therefore width restrictions are proposed. This will provide more footway space for pedestrians and a shorter distance to cross. In addition, the safety risks of vehicles driving on the wrong side of the refuge island observed on site can be avoided.There have been several complaints regarding noise and vibration associated with vehicles (especially buses and large vehicles) driving at speed over the cushions.

B. Reversal of one-way on Anton Crescent. (refer to details, 4, 7, 8, & 9)
The current direction of one-way on Anton Crescent results in regular congestion outside the school during drop-off and pick up times which at times impacts the flow of traffic on Collingwood Road. Reversing the direction will provide more queuing space for school traffic on Anton Crescent thus minimise impact on Collingwood Road.
C. Raised junction entry treatment. (refer to details, 4, 5 & 10)
The raised entry treatments will provide a level surface for pedestrians when crossing side roads and will help to slow down the in and out movement of traffic.
D. Improvement to walking routes leading to school. (refer to details, 3, 7, 8 & 9)
The area adjacent to the school entrance will be raised. It is proposed to surface the existing grass verge on Anton Crescent adjacent to No. 298 Collingwood Road and widen the footway from the entrance to the Wetlands access leading up to the school entrance to improve walking routes.
E. Signage and road markings.
School warning signs, elderly crossing, weight restriction, bridge height and speed limit signs will be reviewed and adjusted or new ones provided where necessary. 20mph roundels will be refreshed and more added to emphasize the speed limit in the area.
