We have been successful in its bid to Transport for London (TfL) to fund accessibility improvements across the Borough. To improve access for pedestrian it is proposed to introduce an uncontrolled crossing in Dorset Road as shown on the plan overleaf.
The introduction of the pedestrian islands as shown on the plan would involve
1. The removal of the existing speed cushions
2. The installation of a speed table
3. The removal of some parking bays
4. The introduction of double yellow lines
The introduction of the islands do not require a consultation; however, the above proposed enabling measures (points 1-4) do require a statutory consultation.
What happens next
A Notice of the Council's intention to introduce the above proposed measures will be published in the local newspaper and posted on lamp columns in the vicinity. All comments must be in writing by e mailing 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 14th June 2019 quoting reference Dorset Road Crossing.
Upon the completion of the consultation, all representations will be reported to the Cabinet Member for a final decision.
Please note that no response will be made to any representations until after a decision is made by the Cabinet Member.
You will receive an update in due course and the website will be updated accordingly.
A copy of the Notice and plan identifying the area affected by the proposal can be inspected at Merton Link, Merton Civic Centre and at Morden library London Road, Morden, Surrey.
