In September 2016, residents of Elmbourne Road and Hillbury Road signed a petition asking Wandworth Council to review the levels of traffic on these roads. In January 2018, the council conducted an assessment. The council found that Elmbourne Road receives over 700 vehicles per hour in the evening rush hour, which is well above the council's threshold of 300 vehicles per hour for a residential road.
 
As a result of this assessment, the council looked at ways to reduce the traffic on Elmbourne Road. The council worked with Transport for London to explore the possibility of removing the right-turn ban from Tooting Bec Road into Balham High Road, but unfortunately no safe solution could be found so the ban has to remain.

The council has therefore prepared 7 measures for reducing traffic on Elmbourne Road and Hillbury Road:
  1. Right turn ban from Tooting Bec Road into Elmbourne Road.
  2. Right turn ban from Tooting Bec Road into Dr Johnson Avenue.
  3. Upgraded traffic calming and informal crossings on Dr Johnson Avenue and at the junction of Elmbourne Road/Louisville Road.
  4. Relocate Elmbourne Road parking fully onto the carriageway.
  5. Additional junction tables on Elmbourne Road.
  6. Speed tables and informal crossing points on Hillbury Road.
  7. Upgraded entry treatments at the junctions of Elmbourne Road and Hillbury Road with Bedford Hill.
This survey is being conducted by Fleur Anderson, Clare Fraser and Hector Denfield. We are your three local Labour councillors and we would like to know what you think about the above 7 measures so we can represent your views. As opposition councillors we cannot direct the council officers but we can lobby them. Your opinion is vital evidence.
 
Each question below has a comment box with a 100 character limit, and then in question 10 you can write as much as you want.

A public meeting will also be held in either the week commencing 14 January or 21 January. Please provide your email below and full details will be sent to you when the arrangements are finalised.

Thank you for taking part and making your voice heard.

Question Title

* 3. The council is proposing to ban vehicles turning right from Tooting Bec Road into Dr Johnson Avenue. The idea is to reduce traffic on Elmbourne Road, and re-route it to A and B roads. What do you think of this?

Question Title

* 4. The council is proposing to remove the speed bumps on Dr Johnson Avenue and install 5 flat top raised tables (like the one across Elbourne Road where it meets Tooting Bec Road). The idea is to reduce speed and traffic, and to allow pedestrians easier and safer places to cross these roads. What do you think of this?

Question Title

* 5. The council is proposing to move the parking on Elmbourne Road off the pavement and completely onto the road. The idea is to make it easier to travel on the pavements, as in some places at the moment it is too narrow and inaccessible for wheelchair users, prams, etc. It is also dangerous when cars pull onto the pavement to park and a pedestrian is walking on that pavement. Having the parking on the road will also reduce speed and traffic, encouraging the use of A and B roads. What do you think of this?

Question Title

* 6. The council is proposing to add 8 new flat top raised tables (like the one across Elmbourne Road where it meets Tooting Bec Road) on Elmbourne Road at the junctions of Louisville Rd, Drakefield Rd, Streathbourne Rd, Huron Rd, Manville Rd, Bushnell Rd, and 2 more places at the north end of Elmbourne Road. The idea is to reduce speed and traffic, and allow pedestrians easier and safer places to cross the road. What do you think of this?
