Woodcote Road traffic signals to be synchronised

traffic_light232751609_std1

Finally the work to link the traffic signals from the Woodcote Road junction with Stafford Road down to the Melbourne Road pedestrian crossing on Manor Road is underway. Ever since the new pedestrian crossing at Beddington Gardens was put in to prevent more accidents occurring at this junction Colin, Richard & I have been nagging TfL to get this work done to ease the traffic flow along Woodcote Road. We had been promised that a ‘slot’ for the work had been allocated but the date the work would begin proved elusive. At last we have been informed that the work is underway.

 

Also included in the linking will be the traffic signals at the entrance to Sainsbury’s car park and the pedestrian crossings by Shotfield and Hawthorn Road.

 

The linking will mean that detectors in the road will respond to queues of traffic and adjust the signal timings to create a better progression of traffic in this area.

 

The work is due to be completed by mid April and we will look forward to seeing if the linking has the desired effect of improving traffic flow through Wallington.
