Bus 'beached' at junction of Streatham High Road / Tooting Bec Gardens / Mitcham Lane

There were huge tailbacks on Thursday morning along the Southbound carriageway on Streatham High Road (A23) when a bus apparently hit a traffic island and got stuck.

The incident happened at the St Leonard's Church junction, where Streatham High Road meets Tooting Bec Gardens and Mitcham Lane at the point where Gleneldon Road joins the High Road.

TfL promised a safety review of this junction last year. It was due to happen in April, but we got it brought forward after several collisions over Christmas. It was also recently resurfaced, and the box junction moved. We are still waiting for the results.

There are a number of ideas that could be pursued to improve the junction significantly if TfL is prepared to think creatively.
