Improvements at the intersection of two key strategic routes in Croydon to improve traffic congestion, including Fiveways Corner, new widened footways on Waddon Station Bridge, upgraded toucan crossings, and a new east-west cycle route.
Delivery Body: Croydon Council/Transport for London
Coast to Capital LGF Allocation: £3.25m
Match Funding Contribution: £6m
Project Status: Awaiting Funding Agreement
Summary of Project
Fiveways is a road junction along Purley Way in Croydon and within walking distance of Waddon Railway Station. Currently the area suffers congestion leading to increased journey times. With proposed growth plans in place for Croydon, current issues will only be exacerbated if improvement works are not carried out.
The Fiveways Project will improve capacity, specifically for sustainable travel options by creating cycle paths and improving public space for pedestrians to use the surrounding area with safer crossing options and improved access to the railway station. A bus lane will also be created to support the existing 3,000 passengers and encourage new passengers with improved reliability and journey times.
These overall improvements will reduce congestion and therefore journey times for users. The Local Growth Funds awarded to this project will contribute to land acquisition and project design development.
