Question

Last November I held a very useful site visit with TfL officers and local councillors to discuss road safety on the A23 around the St Leonard's area of Streatham. Please could we now have an update on the actions which were discussed?

TfL is making good progress to address the range of issues discussed at this meeting. Pedestrian countdown signs have been installed at the crossing outside Streatham station, and improvements to local footways are planned for later this year.

The feasibility of a new signalised pedestrian crossing on Streatham High Road at Streatham Green is also being investigated, in discussion with LB Lambeth Councillors and officers. TfL will be in a position to update you on progress in the autumn.
