And just a note on the New Park Road scheme. This was supposed reduce/calm traffic around Richard Atkins Primary School (where there's loads of kids, shops, pubs etc) - but it didn't work because they didn't take an "area wide approach" , i.e. reduce traffic using it as a rat run/cut through. They could have made it one way, or filtered the traffic to make drivers use the south circular then turn left onto Brixton Hill, but in the end what we got was a narrowed road with a load of coloured circles painted on the road. And it doesn't work. It's still a rat run, it still has loads of traffic, it's still dangerous for the kids to cross the road.... I mean, there isn't even a zebra crossing FFS - right outside a primary school!
