The London Borough of Croydon (Prescribed Routes) (No. 1) Experimental Traffic Order 1998

Notice is hereby given that the Council of the London Borough of Croydon, with the approval of the Traffic Director for London, made the above-mentioned Order on 3rd February 1998, under sections 9 and 124 and Part IV of Schedule 9 to the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended by the Local Government Act 1984.   The general effect of the Order will be to:   (a) suspend the provisions of the Croydon (Prescribed Routes) (No. 2) Traffic Order 1995 which introduced a 7 foot width restriction in Waddon Court Road; and   (b) introduce closures to all vehicles except pedal cycles in Waddon Court Road and Alton Road at their junctions with Purley Way.   A copy of the Order which will come into operation on 9th February 1998, of the Council’s statement of reasons for making the Order and of a plan showing the roads affected, can be inspected at the “One Stop” Facility, at the main Council Offices, Taberner House, Park Lane, Croydon, during normal office hours, Mondays to Fridays inclusive.   The Order will remain in effect for up to 18 months and may be modified or suspended by the Council during that time. After a period of 6 months the provisions of the Order may be continued on in force permanently. Objections to the Order must be made in writing, stating the grounds thereof and should be received at the Council Offices within 6 months from the date on which the Order comes into operation.   Any challenge to the validity of the Order, on the basis that the statutory procedures have not been complied with, should be made at the High Court within 6 weeks of the Order being made.   The Order is intended to introduce road closures in Waddon Court Road and Alton Road at their junctions with Purley Way to prevent strategic road traffic from using these residential streets as a cut through to avoid delays at the main A232/A23 junction. Consideration has been given to vulnerable road users with pedal cycle lanes or exemptions being provided where appropriate.   The Councillors for this ward are Chris Allen, Marilyn Allen and Charlie Burling.
