    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.

  • Central Road Worcester Park

    "proposals to improve the flow of traffic and improve the environment for residents, traders, pedestrians, cyclists and users of public transport. 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."

    How is this going to achieve this by creating a few parking bays and a new sign for a car park?

  • Sutton Tram Link

    Created by Marcus Howarth // 1 thread

    see https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/trams/sutton-link/?cid=sutton-link

    Here's the overview from TFL:

    Overview
    We are consulting on proposals for a new, direct and quicker transport link between Sutton and Merton. We have called this the Sutton Link.

    The Sutton Link would create a high-capacity route for people travelling between Sutton town centre and Merton using zero-emission vehicles. It would connect with other major transport services into central London and across south London, including National Rail, London Underground, existing tram and bus services. It would make journeys by public transport quicker and more attractive, and reduce the need for trips by private car.

    Many of the neighbourhoods along the proposed routes have limited public transport options. The Sutton Link would support new homes being built and would improve access to jobs, services, major transport hubs and leisure opportunities across both boroughs and beyond.

    Our work is at a stage where we would like to know your views about three potential routes. We are considering a tram or ‘bus rapid transit’ (BRT) for the Sutton Link and would also like to know your views on this.

    BRT is similar to a tram but runs on road segregated from traffic where possible, not on rails, and carries fewer people in each vehicle. A full explanation is included below in the section titled ‘About trams and bus rapid transit’.

    From LCC -

    general principles would be ensure this doesn’t negatively impact cycle routes, that there are good routes to the stations/stops, that any places where cyclists will be crossing tracks are designed carefully with latest materials to avoid tramlining incidents, that the space comes from private car lanes.
