Avoca Road, Tooting - Review of parking bay layout

We are asking residents for their views on proposals to relocate parking from the footway onto the carriageway.

Background

Following the receipt of a petition from residents of Avoca Road in 2019 and requests from ward councillors requesting the introduction of traffic calming measures to reduce vehicle speeds and for the partial footway parking bays to be relocated fully into the carriageway, officers have designed a proposed revised layout.

Whilst the proposed design includes new passing places, to enable vehicles including emergency services and other larger vehicles to pass each other, the repositioning of the parking bays from partial footway to fully within the carriageway, is expected to result in an increase in the total number of parking spaces. 

As many as 13 additional car spaces are estimated to be made available as well as providing additional footway width for pedestrians and having a traffic calming effect.

Consultation

The Council is now seeking your views or comments before requesting the necessary approval to amend the Traffic Management Orders governing the existing yellow line waiting restrictions and parking places. 

The consultation opened on Monday 20 January 2020 and will close on Friday 14 February 2020.
