Overview

We have made some changes to the A23 between Oval and Streatham as part of an experiment. We hope these changes will help people who can to walk and cycle more, to help maintain space on public transport for those who need it and help people to avoid using their cars as much as possible.

We want to know your views and experiences on these changes. We are holding a six-month consultation on the A23 experimental scheme. You can reply by following the link to the Survey below. We also want this consultation to be accessible to everyone.

The purpose of this scheme

Enabling walking and cycling

There are already large numbers of people who cycle regularly along the A23 between Oval and Streatham. Our data shows that over 500 people regularly cycle between Oval and Streatham in the peak period. We think there is the potential for more people to cycle along the A23, but only if we introduce new measures to encourage and support people to do so. Doing so will help to take pressure off buses and trains so that key workers, and people who cannot walk or cycle, can travel more easily. It will also help buses to run more reliably.

Keeping people safe

We also need to take action to prevent people walking and cycling from being hurt and injured: there were 80 collisions along the A23 between August 2017 and March 2019 which led to people being hurt. Of these, 50% involved people walking and cycling.

A map giving an overview of the changes we will be making can be found in the 'Documents' section.
