What progress has Transport for London made on addressing the confusing parking bay signage situated on the stretch of London Road between Senhouse Road and Malden Road, along the TFL red route at the junction in North Cheam? Local residents have described this particular area as a Venus flytrap.


Answer for Parking

Answer for Parking

Answered By:

This location has both parking and loading bays. Whilst a relatively low number of penalties have been issued at this location, I do appreciate that some members of the public may be confused by these arrangements. The bays were designed to reflect a range of differing demands at this location such as loading and parking facilities and are not there to entrap motorists. As the problems continue to persist, I have asked TfL to work directly with those affected to review the arrangements in place. TfL hope to do so by November.
