|Nicole Griffiths: Safer A23|
Transport for London is to share its plans to improve safety on the A23 in Streatham Hill at an informal evening workshop on Tuesday 13th March.
The workshop comes as latest figures show collisions on the A23 through Streatham continue to increase. In 2016 there were 113 collisions between Streatham Hill, junction with the South Circular, and Streatham High Road's border with Croydon, including 10 crashes resulting in life-changing injuries. Thankfully, there were no fatalities.
The underlying trend, however, appears to be for increasing danger on the road. The five-year figure for collisions rose from 471 to 489, with serious injuries rising from 41 to 45 and deaths falling from eight to seven.
