Serious collisions on A23 in Streatham double in a year



London Assembly Member Caroline Russell has won assurance from Transport for London that a consultation on plans to redesign the A23 at Streatham Hill will go ahead the second week of November. The news comes as latest statistics from TfL reveal that the number traffic collisions resulting in serious injuries on Streatham Hill and Streatham High Road have doubled in a year. 
 
Provisional stats for 2018 show there were 212 collisions on the A23 between its junction with the South Circular and the border with the borough of Croydon, including 28 resulting in life-changing injuries. This is a significant increase on the previous year – an increase in all collisions of 59% and a 100% increase in collisions resulting in serious injuries. Thankfully, there were no fatalities.
