Match Funding Contribution: £6m

Project Status: Delivering


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.



Key Outputs

  • 1,970sqm public space
  • 280m of ne cycle lanes
