The Traffic Congestion and Pollution Reduction Scheme (TCPR)
View the latest LBHF presentation on the traffic scheme below
Over the last several months LBHF has hosted several Zoom meetings with traffic engineers to help explain their longterm plans and objectives. The main focus is to reduce traffic congestions and pollution in South Fulham.
Please see their presentation below for the key aspects of the TCPR and why it is a viable solution to tackle the current environmental / climate crisis. The main objectives include:
- Reduce traffic across south Fulham
- Make roads safer for pedestrians and cyclists
- Remove through traffic from side roads, stop rat running
- Improve air quality, cut congestion
- Enhance Wandsworth Bridge Road as a place to live, work and visit
- Support local businesses
- Ensure public transport runs smoothly
Short Term protections for Wandsworth Bridge Road, as proposed by LBHF traffic engineers (introduced prior to or simultaneously with the western extension as part of the experimental traffic order):
- 20mph speed limit on WBR.
- Competing traffic lanes at New Kings Road junction and southern approach from Wandsworth Bridge to reduce capacity and traffic density on the WBR.
- Greenscreens and Planters at key locations along WBR.
- Mini Parklets on the adjoining side roads.
- Re-painting of road markings on the WBR to deter through-traffic.
Long Term protections for the Wandsworth Bridge Road (designed and submitted to TfL and other statutory bodies prior to/simultaneously the implementation of the western extension):
- Incorporation of ‘Bus Borders’ along WBR.
- Additional pedestrian crossings.
- Improvement of cycling provisions along WBR.
