Question

Lombard roundabout in Croydon has approval from the Department for Transport (DfT) to proceed to the next stage of development in its major road network programme. Will you ensure that your scheme addresses community severance and resolves high-risk road danger issues for people walking and cycling as set out in recommendation three of The London Assembly Transport Committee report, Hostile Streets, in December 2017?

The main purpose of the Lombard Roundabout scheme is to reduce collisions, which are currently above the outer London average. Lombard Roundabout is a very busy vehicular interchange, especially for freight and buses and TfL intends to re-examine the junction to reduce severance and air pollution and make the area more pleasant to visit. This will include a strong focus on my Healthy Streets approach to prioritise the needs of people walking, cycling and using public transport. The Department for Transport’s recent announcement will allow this scheme to progress to the next stage of development.
