Answer for Illegal left turns off the Old Kent Road at Peckham Park Road

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Upon reaching Peckham Park Road, westbound traffic on Old Kent Road is now clearly directed to continue ahead only. There are four 'ahead only' green traffic signal aspects and four 'ahead only' blue roundel arrows on the signal poles. Both traffic lanes are also marked with 'ahead only' road markings. No further changes are currently planned.
