Safety review brought forward for Streatham High Road/ Mitcham Lane/ Tooting Bec Gardens

Regular readers of this blog will know that we got the promise of a safety review of the junction at Tooting Bec Gardens, Streatham High Road and Mitcham Lane.

The bad news was that the review wasn't going to happen until April 2013.

Following a number of other collisions however, we asked Green Assembly member Darren Johnson whether he could push the mayor to try and get it brought forward. We are pleased to report that the London Mayor has agreed and the safety review is set to take place in the next few weeks.

The full question for Darren to the Mayor, and the Mayor's response can be found here (reproduced below)

Tooting Bec Gardens/Streatham High Road/Mitcham Lane junction safety review
Question No: 4022 / 2012

Darren Johnson
Although TfL’s decision to implement a new signal strategy at the junction of Tooting Bec Gardens/Streatham High Road/Mitcham Lane is welcome, in light of another recent collision here, will TfL now urgently bring forward its safety review of this junction, currently scheduled for April 2013?

Written response from the Mayor
TfL will commence this study early in the New Year.
