All change for A23 in Streatham Hill

Straight-across crossings, not staggered

News from Transport for London that they are considering two options for changes to the A23 to improve safety between the south circular and Streatham Hill station:

OPTION 1
* one bus lane and one general traffic lane in each direction
* removal of central reservation
* 20mph speed limit
* segregated bi-directional cycle way on western side
* 6 straight-across crossings with countdown signals and raised tables
* floating bus stops for north-bound buses only
* Telford Ave/Arriva bus garage exit converted to signalised junction

* footway widened on eastern side in some places, with tree planting where possible
* wider entries to all side roads
* loading in inset bays on eastern side and side roads
* parking only outside NHS building
* Amesbury Ave becomes left-turn exit only
Floating bus stops
* No entry/exit to Ardwell Rd, except cyclists
* Wyatt Pk Rd becomes left-turn exit only

OPTION 2
* one bus lane and one general traffic lane in each direction
* removal of central reservation
* 20mph speed limit
* segregated cycleway on each side of carriageway
* 4 staggered crossings with raised tables and countdown signals

* footway width reduced in places
* floating bus stops for northbound and southbound buses

With-flow cycle lanes
* loading provided on both sides of A23 as floating bays
* No entry/exit to Barcombe Ave, except for cyclists
* No entry/exit to Amesbury Ave, except for cyclists
* No entry/exit to Wyatt Park Rd, except for cyclists
* parking only outside NHS building

Formal consultation is due to take place in late 2018 with view to work commencing 2019/20.
