Green Lights for Green Lane?


The plans to link and re-phase all of the sets of traffic lights in Worcester Park are due to be completed this month - according to blog reader Jennifer, the scheme seems already seems to have worked wonders for commuters using Green Lane:

"For the last 4 years, I have been living on The Hamptons estate and the commute along Green Lane and Central/Malden Road originally took approximately 30 minutes on most mornings.

The journey has improved quite considerably since the traffic lights now allows at least eight vehicles through instead of the "snail-pace" four! 

Occasionally, at about 0735 am, I have travelled the full length of Green Lane without stopping (with the lights on green of course)! This has only been possible over the last few months.

Perhaps the flow of traffic has not improved to the extent that one might expect, but progress has prevailed.

There must be someone out there who has also noticed the difference?'

Has your commute been eased by the re-phasing of the lights?
