The council is taking action to improve road safety in Battersea Church Road following appeals for action from local residents.

And following detailed consultation with local people the council’s engineers will soon deliver a £180,000 package of safety measures, including:

• A new raised table zebra crossing at 45-47 Battersea Church Road.
• A second zebra crossing outside the “Montevetro” building.
• A raised carriageway table at the junction with Sunbury Lane.
• Speed cushions near 11 Battersea Church Road.
• A raised carriageway table at the junction with Bolingbroke Walk.
• A raised carriageway table at the entrance to Crewkerne Court’s car park.

Funding for the scheme comes from the borough’s Neighbourhood CIL fund which is made up of cash levied from housing developers to fund local community infrastructure projects.

Transport spokesman Cllr John Locker said: “Residents in this part of Battersea have called for safety improvements on this busy road and this scheme delivers them.

“The plans have been drawn up following detailed local consultation and are designed to reduce excessive speed and make it a safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists.”
