Petition to remove no left turn restriction on Withycombe Road and Inner Park Road Southfields SW19

Petition to remove no left turn restriction on Withycombe Road and Inner Park Road Southfields SW19

Remove restriction and allow traffic to drive through Withycombe Road and Inner Park Road as before.

Why is this important?

It doesn't prevent people using this route, it just diverts traffic further down Wimbledon Park Side and into the roads where gas servicing road works are taking place. This is creating gridlocked traffic in residential roads, which were previously quiet, as the roads are mostly single lane due to the resident's parked cars. The knock-on effect of this is causing much heavier traffic along the A3 and routes leading into Wimbledon, Putney and Wandsworth. Due to this, people are now trying to access Wimbledon via earlier A3 exits and this has created gridlocked traffic at Coombe Lane and surrounding residential roads also. Scrap this terrible idea.

Reasons for signing

  • I have had a flat on the Merton Road for 20 years and always used this route home. We pay for the roads so why don't we have a say when the council changes the use of that road? There's no good reason for it other than to catch people out and make money.
  • Yet another money making machine implemented by Wandsworth Council. Since introduction, congestion on the Tibbet's Corner roundabout and the Wimbledon Park Side has worsen. By Council own admission 78% still use same roads, turning left just further along the road. Nothing has been achieved, just more congestion! Trial extended until March 2020. Please sign petition and make your view heard on
  • This new restriction is making traffic problems worse in the area, not better.
