TfL consultation on A23 Streatham High Road

Transport for London (TfL) are consulting on proposals to relocate a signalised pedestrian crossing on the A23 Streatham High Road (part of the Transport for London Road Network) from the junction with Woodburne Avenue to the junction with Gracefield Gardens. TfL are proposing this as observations have shown many pedestrians wish to cross the road at this point and have been doing so informally, which has led to a higher number of accidents. TfL believe that many people wish to cross the High Road at this point as they want to access the bus stops, local shops and the large health centre in Gracefield Gardens.

In order to do this safely TfL would need to:

  • Close Gracefield Gardens to motor traffic at its junction with the High Road, whilst allowing access for cyclists.
  • Remove the loading/disabled bay on the red route section of Gracefield Gardens close to the junction in order to allow smaller vehicles to turn around.
  • Remove some trees from the central reservation on Streatham High Road - these would be replaced with additional tree planting nearby and improvements to the urban realm at the junction of Gracefield Gardens and the A23.
  • Adjust the location of bus stop OA on Streatham High Road, moving it 5 metres to the south
  • Have your say

    TfL would like to hear your views before they further develop this scheme. You can view all the details of the proposals - including a map, Equality Impact Assessment and FAQs - and complete TfL's online survey, by visiting

    You will need to register with your email address in order to complete the survey; your data will be kept securely and only used, with your permission, to send you updates on the proposals. Alternatively you can send your views by email to or by letter to FREEPOST TFL HAVE YOUR SAY (no stamp required).

    Please share your views with TfL by 27 January 2022 .
