Sharp rise in serious collisions on A23 in Streatham

UPDATE: public consultation delayed by general election will now start 6th Jan.

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 risen sharply 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 19 resulting in life-changing injuries, up from 133 collisions, 13 of which were serious, the previous year.
