A24 Morden Road/Jubilee Way crossing improvements

Closed 7 May 2019

Opened 26 Mar 2019

Results Updated 7 Aug 2019

Between 26 March and 7 May 2019, we consulted on proposals for the junction between Morden Road and Jubilee Way in the London Borough of Merton. We received 225 responses to the consultation, of which 76% said that the changes would improve the junction.

Summary of issues raised during consultation

  • Positive comments included supporting the principle of making the changes, and saying the proposals would be good for road safety, cycling, residents and/or pedestrians
  • The lack of segregated cycling infrastructure and the narrowing of lanes on the Morden Road northbound exit to the junction was raised as a concern by some respondents

Next steps

We are planning to proceed with the proposals. However, following a review of the full width advanced stop lines (ASLs), due to the split phases of the traffic signals whereby right turning traffic turns during a different part of the signal cycle to the straight ahead traffic, we have decided to progress with a final design which will have part width ASLs.  

We plan to start construction in Autumn 2019.

Overview

We are proposing to make changes to the junction of Morden Road and Jubilee Way to improve the crossing and turning facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.

Previously, the London Borough of Merton and local residents had requested changes to the crossing facilities on Morden Road at the junction with Lombard Road. However, due to the difficulty of road users not being able to have clear view of pedestrians this was not considered a safe location.

What are we proposing?

The proposed changes will introduce a green man phase to the crossing at Jubilee Way and Morden Road; this would make them safer for pedestrians and cyclists.

We propose to introduce a new staggered pedestrian crossing with traffic lights on the north side of the junction with Morden Road and a straight across crossing on Jubilee Way. We also propose to install traffic lights at the exit to the recreation ground which is currently uncontrolled to allow vehicles to safely exit.

Advanced Stop Lines (ASL) would be provided on all arms of the junction. This would help separate cyclists from drivers at the junction and make it safer for them. Right turns from Morden Road southbound into the recreation ground car park would be banned to avoid conflicts between vehicles.
