new trees that went in today
Not only will it improve the look of the High Road, but also help to tackle the air pollution.
There was a time, when it seemed that there would be no trees going in at all!
Great credit should go to groups like Transition Streatham, who we worked with, along with TfL and the Council, on the species selection and getting as many trees as possible put in as part of the central reservation project.
Thanks too to John Parker at Transport for London, who was a great help, and a mine of useful information over several years.
Here are a few links giving the background to the central reservation project:
