This proposal is part of a scheme to improve the current sub-standard pedestrian facilities at the busy A232/A2043 crossroads in the centre of Cheam village. Changes to the junction layout are necessary to achieve the desired improvements, which affects the signal operations. The banned turn (right from Station Way to High Street) has been proposed to prevent the small number of vehicles that presently do this manoeuvre (1 or 2 per signal cycle) from obstructing the far higher north/south straight ahead movements that operate within the same signal phase. TfL expects to make a decision on the proposals, following the recent consultation, shortly. .
