Your Lib Dem team in Wallington North and local residents are calling on TfL to re-configure the traffic lights at Wallington Green (A232/A237).
They want Transport for London (TfL) to work with Sutton Council to change the traffic light sequencing and introduce safe pedestrian crossings and to reconfigure south and northbound traffic priority at Croydon Road (A232), Acre Lane and Manor Road North A237.
This junction is extremely dangerous for pedestrians and vehicles as priority is given to vehicles on the A232 and there is no time for pedestrians to cross safely, let alone a formal crossing point on either side of Acre Lane and Manor Road North.
Whilst we recognise that this is a busy road junction, it is also a crucial crossing point for pedestrians, being close to local schools and numerous shops and businesses.
Additionally, at this junction on A237 north and southbound left and right turn traffic filters are also needed to help prevent further accidents at this busy junction.
We understand these locations are under TfL’s jurisdiction as the A232 is a “red route” and that Sutton Council has also raised these concerns directly, but TfL have said they have no plans to change the traffic signals to introduce a pedestrian phase or any left and right turn traffic filters on A237.
Sign the petition: I/We the undersigned want a traffic light controlled crossings and additional north & south filter lights at Wallington Green junction.
