Fiveways in Waddon - Consultation

Why are we doing this?

Transport for London  and Croydon Council have published proposals to make Fiveways in Waddon simpler and safer for all road users. 

This proposed major improvement would provide a safer and more direct route for road users through the area while helping to reduce delays and congestion. The area would be made more welcoming with easier and safer pedestrian access across the A23 Purley Way.  The changes would also improve bus journey times - delivering a better service on routes moving more than 9,000 passengers a day.

What difference has it made?

"Following careful consideration of consultation responses, we have identified some areas of the proposals which could be amended to improve project affordability, further improve the pedestrian environment and strengthen the cycling provision in support of the draft Mayor’s Transport Strategy and the Healthy Streets approach."
