TfL News - A3 Improvements for Cycling and Walking

Between 17th August and 27th September 2015, we consulted on proposals to make improvements for pedestrians and cyclists at six locations along the A3. After considering all the responses, we intend to proceed with the scheme as set out in the consultation documents. We plan to start work in autumn 2016. 

Descriptions of the proposals 

·         Allowing cyclists to formally use existing pedestrian subways without having to dismount at Ely Close, Bushey Road, Keswick Avenue, Southwood Drive, and Warren Drive South. The subways would be designated as shared use, with signage positioned on approaches to clearly identify areas of shared use

·     Improving pedestrian and cyclist safety in these newly created shared use areas by installing cycle barriers at carefully selected locations, guiding cyclists into pedestrian sightlines to be more visible, and reducing the risk of conflict.

·    Resurfacing of footways and new tactile paving at Keswick Avenue connection to subway, and improved ease of access  for cyclists with the installation of a dropped kerb.

 ·    Introducing raised tables across the roadway, bollards along the footway edge and tactile paving to assist visually impaired pedestrians at the junctions of Malden Way(Southbound) with Consfield Avenue, Byron Avenue, Stanley Avenue and Woodfield Gardens. The raised tables would have the effect of slowing approaching vehicles and making it safer for cyclists to cross the junction.

·   Extending the pavement and formalising shared use for pedestrians and cyclists at the junction of Elmbridge Avenue with Tolworth Rise North, making it safe for cyclists to ride on the footway at the end of the eastbound slip road to continue across Elmbridge Avenue without dismounting

·   Widening the shared use path on Beverley Way beneath the Coombe Way Flyover, installing new tactile paving at crossing points and resurfacing the shared path.
