Work is finally due to start on the Croydon Road concourse where, after Bromley Council allowed three parking spaces to put in, we have seen for a number of years the pavement used as a ‘highway’ for cars leaving the concourse after being blocked in by other cars, putting passers-by at risk..  

Suitable measures will now be implemented after our long campaign to prevent vehicles from being driven over the footway along this section of Croydon Road.  The bus stop was moved in the first phase of these highway safety measures, so action is now needed for the whole section of this forecourt. The plan is for a mixture of cycle stands, bollards and possibly a planter. There are also plans to raise the kerb in order to stop vehicles mounting the pavement and preventing harm to those walking by.  We hope this area of Penge will now become much safer.
