Streatham Wells Stage 1 Monitoring Report Published

We have published the Stage 1 Monitoring Report for the Streatham Wells Low Traffic Neighbourhood.

On 7 March 2024, Lambeth Council announced a suspension of the trial Low Traffic Neighbourhood in Streatham Wells, following concern about public transport impacts and anticipated disruption on the A23 caused by the construction of TfL healthy streets improvement. 

The Stage 1 Monitoring Report shows that across the LTN and boundary roads there has been a 2% net reduction in traffic and the number of vehicles breaking the speed limit has fallen by 68% compared to pre-LTN levels. 

During the trial, the LTN met the strategic objectives of the Climate Action Plan, Transport Strategy and is in line with the Lambeth 2030 Borough Plan. However, traffic on boundary roads was compounded by significant levels of roadworks by utilities and has had significant impacts on bus services in Streatham. 

The Council is working with partners to make changes and investments to improve transport in Streatham. With new bike lanes, enhanced bus priority and many other related schemes, we are making Streatham cleaner, greener, safer and more sustainable.
