Campaigning to improve the A23 in Streatham

Caroline Pidgeon joined A23 campaigners in Streatham on Thursday 13th October to discuss a range of issues on Streatham High Road from dangerous driving by motorcyclists, to the need for safe pedestrian crossings and a much better environment in the area. Caroline then did a walkabout from the South Circular to Streatham Station to look first hand at concerns.

“It is clear that having a fast dual carriageway through the heart of Streatham is damaging to the local community. With some investment, particularly at the Streatham Hill end of the High Road and better planning for pedestrians and cyclists along its length, the High Road can be transformed to help strengthen the Streatham Community and green the area” commented Caroline.
