What does anyone think of the following suggestions?or do they have any others to cut down on the traffic using Devonshire rd and Benson, Ewelme, Tyson, Dunoon as rat runs.
Block Devonshire rd where it joins the south circular so drivers cannot turn from Honor Oak rd and use it as a short cut to south cicular, and vice versa.
Block Devonshire rd where it joins Dunoon rd so drivers cannot use it as a shortcut from Honor Oak rd to Honor Oak Park and Vice versa.
This may then solve the parking on the pavement problem as residents of Devonshire rd would be less likely to have their cars damaged by cut through drivers so could park in the road
Only local residents would use Devonshire Rd and Ewelme, Benson Tyson and Dunoon and may be more likely to onbserve the 20 mph speed limit.
It may cause inconvenience for drivers who live in the area but on the plus side perhaps 90% of the through traffic passing their doors would be stopped making a more pleasant environment
It is a similar idea to what exists where Grierson Rd joins Honor Oak Park
Any ideas? objections? other suggestions? what does everyone think?
