Having lived in Carshalton for 53 years, we have enjoyed the convenient use of all the roads as both a driver and a cyclist. Perfectly adequate thoroughfares should not be blocked for frivolous reasons. Will the Council next suggest removal of bridges to encourage us to start swimming??

My son didn’t know that this had been closed and had now received two charges for driving over the bridge which had always been open . We have not seen any advanced warnings about these restrictions . It took us nearly 45 mins to get from Wallington to rise hill because of all these changes . It just diverts traffic to other roads . I believe this is another money making scene for sutton council

I have always used this route to visit my family and stops me having to cause more traffic through Carshalton high street. There are speed bumps to prevent people speeding these roads already .

I’m signing this petition because I grew up in the Butter Hill area throughout the 70s and 80s and have witnessed too the increase in vehicle ownership and use; however strongly disagree now with the way that traffic controls over the Mill Lane/Butter Hill bridge have been implemented. It is patently not wrong to own a car or to use it for journeys which are not possible using walking or bicycle, and have now switched to a fully electric car in order to drive ‘emission free’. This scheme was designed to decrease traffic flows and use of rat runs but in my opinion the lack of ‘resident only access’ forces all of the Butter Hill visitor and resident traffic to funnel through the already narrow Rose and Crown restriction. Closure of the Butter Hill bridge creates an island of hundreds of houses which are effectively cordoned off and can only be approached from the Wallington Green direction. By implementing ANPR to deter vehicles from crossing the bridge (whilst leaving it open to vehicles) it creates two problems. Firstly if you don’t care about fines or have no intention of paying them then the bridge will still be used, secondly if you are an unsuspecting motorist used to visiting the area regularly but don’t notice the new signage you will be penalised. Block the bridge entirely with a removable bollard for emergency vehicles or change the signage to permit access only for residents or their visitors.

I live in Acadia close l am a care worker this has a massive impact on my daily routine at times my husband will pick me and my bike up from location as l have a very short break time this is impacting the time it takes to get home eat then go back out to work we as residents need to be able to access the bridge its not fair. We have lived here for over 20 years we need access. I will be driving soon this is going to be a massive impact on my job.

This estate is land locked with two entrances / exits, cutting it to one is madness.
