TfL to start 6 week project across Disraeli Road and Putney High Street south
Transport for London’s work to upgrade the pedestrian crossing across Disraeli Road and Putney High Street south will begin next week, Tuesday 1 September.
Part of TfL’s £4bn Road Modernisation Plan, the work will involve upgrading the traffic signals to new energy efficient LED lighting and introducing Pedestrian Countdown - which lets pedestrians know how long they have left to safely cross the road.
The work will take around six weeks to complete and take place Monday to Friday (08:00 and 18:00) and Saturdays (08:00 and 13:00), with electrical works carried out between 22:00 and 05:00 to help reduce disruption.
Dana Skelley, Director of Asset Management for Surface Transport at TfL, said:
“TfL is committed to ensuring that pedestrians can make safe journeys on the road network. By using the latest technology and equipment, we can provide them with the safest environment possible.”
TfL told us that the Road Modernisation Plan is the biggest investment in London’s roads for a generation. With a budget of £4bn from now until 2021/22, the Road Modernisation Plan includes hundreds of transformational projects on the road network. Working with London’s boroughs, it will make the Capital’s roads safer and more reliable, and London will be a better place in which to live, work and travel.
