Local Lib Dem Councillors - David Bartolucci, Vincent Galligan and Ali Mirhashem - are working to improve our High Street.
Safety Improvements in Throwley Way
As part of their plan to improve road safety in our area, David, Vincent and Ali were successful in securing funding for improvements on Throwley Way.
The works are expected to reduce conflict between vehicles turning right into Benhill Avenue and buses using the bus lane. In addition, the surfacing within the bus lane was improved.
The work involved; removal of the bus lane, resurfacing of the existing bus lane, installation of new paving at the crossing at the bus stop north of the junction.
Cllr Vincent Galligan said: "We are constantly working to improve the access from Benhill Avenue and the High Street and I'm delighted that another piece of this puzzle has been completed. This follows funding we secured to improve the landscaped area opposite the Salvation Army".
Sainsbury’s coming to Sutton High Street
As part of the on-going regeneration of Sutton Town Centre, David, Vincent and Ali all welcome the forthcoming opening of the new Sainsbury’s at the northern end of the High Street.
This will be one of Sainsbury’s larger stores (at 50,000sq ft) and will include an in-store bakery, a café and a full counter service, whilst also creating more than 300 jobs in the local area.
There will also be more shop units, to rejuvenate the northern end of the High Street, with new flats above.
Finally, thanks to funding from Sainsbury’s, the pavement and road adjacent to the development has been revamped to enhance the area.
Cllr David Bartolucci said: “We are pleased that Sainsbury’s have redeveloped the northern end of the High Street.
“Having been a life-long resident of Sutton, I remember the many years the site was derelict. I’m also delighted that this development will supply more new jobs and affordable housing to local residents.”
