PUBLIC MEETING - SAFER VALLEY ROAD

Speeding on Valley Road is commonplace, as is road rage, pollution caused by idling engines and increasingly heavy traffic. The speed limit is already 20 mph but it is not enforced and speed bumps have done little to remedy the issue.  The congestion appears to have been made worse by making side roads one way.  But I wonder, is there an alternative? 

Local councillors do not feel they have had the mandate from local residents to make changes.  

Streatham High Road roadworks update

I was requested to attend – and once again at very short notice – a follow-up meeting at Lambeth Town Hall on Tuesday afternoon, which had been convened by LBL and TfL. Two central Streatham councillors, Cllrs Mohammed Seedat and Saleha Jaffer, were also in attendance. The purpose of the meeting was not only to update us all on the anticipated completion date for the emergency sewage repairs, but also to provide us with detail as to the various stages involved in the upcoming St Leonard’s Junction improvement works.
