Streatham Wells LTN proposed map Have your say on the plans to trial the streets between Leigham Court Road and Streatham High Road SW16 as a Low Traffic Neighbourhood in 2023. This LTN is to be called Streatham Wells LTN.
Through traffic will go around the area marked by Leigham Court Rd, Streatham High Rd and Streatham Common North. See map:[ pdf ]
The “Street Improvements” section includes plans to widen the pavement on Leigham Court Rd near Dunraven School and opposite the petrol station – removing parking from #153-213. A raised crossing is proposed for St Julians Farm Road opposite Julians school.
Reducing traffic in LTNs make the LTN area into a safer, healthier and more pleasant place for walking and cycling. Rat running traffic through the roads east of Leigham Court Road ( eg Knollys Road, Broxholm Road, Canterbury Grove, Leaf Grove ) may reduce too.
Monitoring of the trial shows that traffic has reduced by 6,100 vehicles a day. Traffic has increased by 7% on Leigham Vale. Cycling has increased and air quality outside schools is within legal limits.
If the LTN is made permanent there will be improvements planned to boundary roads to improve cycling and walking, road layouts, signal timings, and green screens at schools
The council wants to make the streets between Leigham Court Road and Streatham High Road a safer, healthier and more pleasant place for all by creating a Low Traffic Neighbourhood called Streatham Wells.
