Better Protection for Pedestrians using Tennison Road Bridge
One of our local residents has set up an e-petition on the croydon.gov.uk website requesting that Croydon Council install pedestrian railings across Tennison Road Bridge as part of the redevelopment programme.
The replacement the road bridge in Tennison Road, South Norwood will result in increased traffic flow in the area. The proposed replacement bridge will have wider carriageways and has been designed to a 40 tonne weight limit which will result in increased use by heavy goods vehicles.
This bridge is used by a large number of pedestrians at busy times of the day, particularly children, travelling to and from local schools and South Norwood Recreation Ground. Although the proposed bridge provides wider pedestrian footways, there is no provision within the planning design for the segregation of vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
The purpose of this is to petition Croydon Council to install protective railings on both sides of the carriageway in order to protect pedestrians using the new structure
The e-petition can be signed here . In order to sign the petition you just enter your email address, wait for a confirmation email, click on the link and enter your details.
The council are holding a walk-in session at Speroni’s (CPFC) on 25th February 2014, it would be great if they could get lots of signatories by then.
Please tell your friends and family!
