Croydon Pushes Ahead with 20Mph in Zone 2

Following my previous article on Croydon Council rejecting objections to a wide area 20 mph scheme in North Croydon (despite the public consultation vote clearly being rigged), they are now pushing ahead with a similar consultation in North-East Croydon (Addiscombe, Ashburton, Woodside, Shirley, Heathfield, Fairfield, parts of Selhurst and South Norwood).

Those who live in that area should make sure they respond to the public consultation. Those who do not, or only use roads in the area will of course be ignored but you could write directly to Croydon Council in that case).

For more details please go to this web page where you will find a link to the Councils consultation web page and more details of a campaign against this proposal: http://www.freedomfordrivers.org/Croydon20.htm . Please make sure you respond if you live in the area, and encourage others you may know to do likewise.

How much will this cost? Probably about another £300,000 of your taxpayers money if they manage to get enough support for it. That will certainly be wasted when it could have been spent on real road safety measures instead.
