In September 2017 Wandsworth Council carried out a community engagement exercise requesting feeback on proposed streetscape improvements on Bellevue Road between its junctions with Trinity Road and St James’s Drive.
All elements of the proposals received a positive response (the results can be found attached at the bottom of the page) and we aim to implement the scheme later this year taking into account any comments as part of this formal consultation.
The scheme includes:
Resurfacing of the footway with York stone
Resurfacing shop forecourts, subject to owner agreement
Replace missing street trees and prevent future pavement damage by tree roots using root directors
Introducing blended crossing/ Copenhagen entry treatments on Wiseton Road/ Althorp Road at their junction with Bellevue Road
Install new cycle stands
Renew security anchors in the motorcycle parking bay
Refurbish and upgrade the lighting columns with embellishments and repainting
Remove or relocate obstructive street furniture
We have listened to all the feedback received from the initial consultation and we have revised the proposal where necessary.
The proposed entry treatments provide an informal crossing point for pedestrians by raising the carriageway level, making access easier for those with prams or in wheelchairs.
The change in carriageway material and the raised table aim to reduce vehicle speeds, reduce vehicle dominance and increase driver awareness of the presence of pedestrians. Following feedback, the proposals include a larger entry treatment and advisory signage to ensure that drivers are aware of the new feature.
More attractive cycle racks have been selected in liaison with your local ward
councillors following your feedback.
In addition to the improved appearance of lighting columns, which will be refurbished with embellishments and painting, the luminaires will be upgraded to LED as part of the borough wide relighting programme.
The proposed measures will enhance the environment for all road users and improve pedestrian safety and accessibility.
