Putney Heath Lane Traffic Management Consultation

Closed 8 Jan 2021

Opened 26 Nov 2020

Overview

As you may already be aware, the Council is currently trialling a right turn ban from Lytton Grove onto West Hill and Putney Hill with the aim of reducing traffic volume and improving road safety.  Following a local petition asking for its removal due to concerns regarding displaced traffic on adjacent residential roads, a report was presented to the Strategic Planning and Transportation Overview and Scrutiny Committee to provide an interim update on the Lytton Grove trial. 

Based on the traffic data gathered, it was evident the main source of traffic volume on adjacent residential roads was via Putney Heath Lane and Rusholme Road.  To address the concerns of this petition, the Council is now consulting residents on a possible trial to deter vehicles from using Putney Heath Lane and Rusholme Road as a cut through between West Hill and Putney Hill during peak hours. 

The proposal is to consider two trial restrictions, a morning peak hour (7-10am) Monday to Friday left turn ban trial from Putney Hill into Putney Heath Lane and a morning peak hour (7-10am) Monday to Friday left turn ban trial from Putney Heath Lane into Rusholme Road.  Both trial restrictions can be introduced independently or as one through the use of an Experimental Traffic Order depending on the outcome of the consultation.       

A plan of the proposed changes can be seen here.
