We have been successful in its bid to Transport for London (TfL) to fund accessibility improvements across the Borough. To improve pedestrian safety and access to the local shops and local schools it is proposed to introduce a zebra crossing in Leopold Road as shown on the plan overleaf. This will reduce the risk of personal injury and provide a safer crossing facility for pedestrians.
To safely introduce the crossing, certain alterations to the road layout in the vicinity will be required. These include a speed table, the removal of two parking bays are realignment of Woodside and Kenilworth Avenue junctions. This will ensure that suitable visibility is provided for pedestrians and approaching vehicles.
What happens next
A Notice of the Council's intention to introduce the crossing will be published in the local newspaper and posted on lamp columns in the vicinity. All comments must be in writing by either emailing email@example.com or write to Environment & Regeneration Department, futureMerton, Merton Civic Centre, London road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX. All comments must be received no later than 26th January 2018 quoting reference Leopold Road Zebra.
