After many years of lobbying by residents and your local councillors, we can now confirm that work to install the new crossing on the Croydon Road, near the top of Hartfield Crescent, will commence on 6th November.
Transport for London (TfL) are also taking the opportunity to resurface the stretch of Croydon Road between Prestons Road and Baston Manor Road, so there will be short-term disruption.
The top of Hartfield Crescent will be closed from 6th November until 22nd December. Parts of Croydon Road itself will be closed during that period between the rush hours (9:30am to 3:30pm Monday to Saturday) and also between 8pm and 5am every night from 13th November to 4th December.
While this will cause inconvenience it will be worth the wait for residents and their children who will now be able to cross this major road in safety.
