Wallington Weather Conditions Update

Traffic

 As at luchtime today (Monday 2nd February) Woodcote Road through

Stafford Road

Stafford Road

Wallington town centre was accessible to traffic although not completely clear of snow in the centre. Vehicles were still moving too fast for the conditions. Stafford Road is treacherous; there is still snow over all of the road and cars are liable to skidding. Vehicles are having difficulties

Woodcote Road/Manor Road

getting up the hill near St Elphege’s Church and have needed to be manually pushed. Stanley Park Road looks even worse for snow clearance.

Pedestrians

Wallington town centre pavements are covered in slushy snow which can be slippery. Stafford Road pavements have some compacted and some deep snow which isn’t too slippery at present, but will become so as the temperature drops. Pedestrians need to take care walking beside Stafford Road as cars might skid off the road into the pavement – I have witnessed this happen already, luckily the cars were not travelling at speed and no one got in the way. All the side road are at least ankle-deep in snow but not too slippery.

Shops & Amenitiescimg1771

The pubs and the supermarkets are open. The post Office is closed as are many of the banks. A few other shops are open. Sainsburys is well stocked with milk & essentials.

Trains & Buses

There are no bus services today (according to the news) and nocimg1767 trains running through Wallington Station as the rails have completely disappeared under snow.
