The Council has proposals to make improvements to the area around the traffic lights at the station in order to improve traffic flow.
Mike East and Peter Leigh have met with Ismiel Alobeid of Bromley Council to discuss the proposals which will involve moving both bus stops further away from the lights to enable better flow and in particular to create two traffic lanes approaching the lights from Beckenham Road.
Additionally it will involve minor alterations to the kerb lines, moving the traffic islands slightly, a removal of the yellow box markings in Red Lodge Road at the end of Hawes Lane and replacement with a keep clear box on the entry to Hawes Lane from Red Lodge Road. Similar treatment is proposed to the Red Lodge Road/Pickhurst Rise junction.
Drop kerbs are to be provided at the width restriction to make crossing by wheel chair users easier. Outside the shops in Red Lodge Road, they propose to widen the pavement by about a metre and to plant trees. The existing Pay & Display parking will be retained.
The cost of £300,000 is to come from a TfL fund. There will be public consultation including the shop keepers but the money needs to be used during the current financial year, so work will commence within the first quarter of 2018.
