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.

My children's School is in Southfields. If this goes on longer than the pilot. I will be taking my children out and finding another School.

Reasons for signing

  • I use public transport ( 93 bus) to get to work on park Side, I get stuck every morning because of the traffic and you never know when the bus will turn up.
  • I work in the area and since this restriction has been introduced, traffic during the morning commute has been extremely noticeably worse
  • The traffic has been backed up on park side, the signs are poor and this has caused more congestion on the roads.
