More road closures next week as work starts 12 Feb on new, safer St Leonard's Junction
Bus passengers and drivers face nearly another two months of road closures and diversions - following the unexpected road works caused by a burst sewer under Streatham High Road in January.
The works to improve the junction of Streatham High Road, Mitcham Lane and Tooting Bec Gardens are the result of long campaigns to make the road safer for all its users. It has been the scene of numerous nasty accidents over recent years, including two fatalities.
The planned closures are diversions are laid out in this letter, which they tell us will be delivered to homes an businesses in the immediate area over the next few days:
TfL will signpost diversion routes during these closures, but urge people to plan ahead, allow more time and use alternative routes where possible. Local access for residents and businesses will be maintained at all times.
Bus routes 50, 57, 109, 118, 133, 201, 249, 250, 255, 315, 319, 333, G1, P13, N109, N133 will be temporarily affected, with some routes diverted at certain stages of the works. We will place notices at affected stops to guide you to the nearest alternative stop.
Footways and pedestrian crossings will be kept open 'wherever possible' and any temporary closures clearly signposted
