Erskine Road Area - Proposed 20mph speed limit

Closed 3 Mar 2024

Opened 2 Feb 2024


Sutton Council is committed to making roads safer in the borough and giving people more choice in how they travel. We want to improve safety on the roads to reduce the number and severity of accidents, to make it easier for people to walk or cycle and to improve air quality.

People have previously told us about traffic issues in the Erskine Road area and we have used this feedback to develop proposals to address these issues.

We are inviting you to give feedback on a proposal to introduce a 20mph speed limit in the Erskine Road area of Carshalton shown on the plan below. 

Proposed 20mph plan

The proposal 

The proposal is to reduce the speed to 20mph on  Brookfield Avenue, Browning Avenue, Byron Avenue, Byron Avenue East, Byron Gardens, Coleridge Avenue, Court Drive, Cowper Avenue, Erskine Road, Florian Avenue, Harold Road, Kingsley Avenue, Laburnum Avenue, Lavender Road, Mead Crescent, Milton Avenue, Orchard Way, Parkhurst Road, Shirley Avenue.

The aim of the 20mph proposal is to improve air quality and reduce the risk and severity of accidents. This would provide a safer environment for all road users and would make it easier for people to walk and cycle in the area if they wish to. 

We would like to bring to your attention that there is also a proposed highway scheme in the Wrythe Green Area with speed reducing features and improved pedestrian facilities. There is a live engagement process currently underway on this proposed scheme, which you can view on the following link on Citizenspace:

And also a proposed 20mph speed limit scheme in the North Street Area. There is a live engagement process currently underway on this proposed scheme, which you can view on the following link on Citizenspace:

All proposed 20mph schemes are local ones which have been designed following feedback from local residents.
