Managing traffic around the Peterborough Estate

Closes 8 Mar 2019

Opened 11 Feb 2019

Overview

We’d like your views on how to reduce through-traffic in your area, reducing road danger and improving the environment to make your neighbourhood more pleasant.

We’re aware that some roads in the Peterborough Estate get too many cars for such a residential area. In particular, Perrymead Street and its adjoining roads experience a high level of rat-running.

Our proposal:

Having spoken with residents and listened to their views, we’ve developed a scheme to reduce the number of vehicles using these residential roads.

We would like to:

  • ban the right turn from Stokenchurch Street into Wandsworth Bridge Road (this will also prevent right turns into Stokenchurch Street from Wandsworth Bridge Road)
  • ban the right turn from Ryecroft Street into Wandsworth Bridge Road (this will also prevent right turns into Ryecroft Street from Wandsworth Bridge Road)
     
  • ban the right turn from Studdrige Street into Wandsworth Bridge Road (this will also prevent right turns into Studdridge Street from Wandsworth Bridge Road)
     
  • ban the right turn Cresford Road into Wandsworth Bridge Road (this will also prevent right turns into Cresford Road from Wandsworth bridge Road)
     
  • ban the right turn from Bovingdon Road into Wandsworth Bridge Road (this will also prevent right turns into Bovingdon Road from Wandsworth Bridge Road)

To enforce these proposals, we plan to install refuge islands on Wandsworth Bridge Road - please see our map below.

We would make the changes by introducing an experimental traffic order and then monitoring the results for approximately six months. We will then ask you for your views again, to see if you think they’ve made a difference, before deciding whether to make these changes permanent.

As part of the scheme, we’re also considering allowing vehicles to turn right from New King’s Road into Wandsworth Bridge Road, but this would take longer to introduce.
