Answer for Croydon Fiveways

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Croydon Council considered a report on two options for Fiveways at a Cabinet meeting in December. The council decided to support the option to widen the existing A23, as opposed to construction of an over bridge reconnecting the A232. The objective of both options is to improve traffic conditions, provide improved facilities for pedestrians and cyclists, and where possible improve bus journey times. The Council will contribute £20m to the delivery of the project and TfL will be working closely with the Council to bring forward detailed design.
