Merton Council

St Helier Avenue


Transport for London are consulting on plans to improve bus services on St Helier Avenue and make the area a safer environment for pedestrians. They propose:

  • Introducing over 1.5km of new bus lanes operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on a 1.6km stretch of road (both directions accounted for)
  • Two new pedestrian crossings at Langdon Walk and Dore Gardens, making St Helier Avenue easier to cross as highlighted by the community
  • Widening footways/pavements at side road junctions to increase space for pedestrians
  • Increasing parking restrictions by changing single red lines to double red lines, changing parking operating hours and removing some parking bays, making bus journeys quicker
  • Retain existing cycle track along western footway of St Helier Avenue
  • Support existing speed restrictions (20mph)

TfL are holding a six week public consultation to hear what you think about these proposals. They want to know if you agree with them, if there is anything you do not agree with, and to understand the reasons why you feel this way.

You can reply by completing their survey, which should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. The closing date for comments is 26 June 2024.

Consultation start date 15 May 2024
Consultation end date 26 June 2024
