This means they will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are caught speeding, you are automatically sent a speeding ticket. The cameras are located […]

St Dunstan’s Hill has a road sign at last!! Last year the TfLs lawn mower had carelessly walloped the road sign for St Dunstans Hill off its post.  A new one was ordered and has now been installed.

A slippery slope in Church Hill Road

by Mary Burstow on 21 March, 2014

I have asked Transport for London, if this little sloping footpath, which runs between Church Hill road and St Dunstans Hill (A217) can be turned into proper steps.  Countless school children going to Cheam High use it rather than walk the slightly longer pavement route.  It is what road traffic engineers call “A desire line” […]

Work on the Manor Road Basin is complete

by Mary Burstow on 17 February, 2014

I am very pleased that at last work on the Manor Road Basin by Transport for London has now finished. The concrete basin was built in the 1930’s and was designed to hold run off water from the A217.  In recent years it has become more of a rubbish dump, that a basin to hold […]

by Mary Burstow on 15 December, 2013

At Thursdays Scrutiny Meeting, I expressed my dissatisfaction as to how long Surrey County Council are taking to resolve the issue of flooding at the Belmont Roundabout.  The problem is caused by water rushing down the A217 Mad Mile and having nowhere to go, except the roundabout. The Roundabout is a major gateway not only into […]

Saving Belmont Rise Woodland

by Mary Burstow on 2 December, 2013

There is a small patch of woodland which is close to the junction of Cornwall Road and Belmont Rise (A217).  On closer inspection, it is clear this is made up of self seeded Sycamore trees, growing in what is a road drainage basin.  I could see little evidence of litter or anti social behaviour. It […]

Slow but steady progress is being made on the flooding problem on the Belmont Roundabout.  The Roundabout is in Surrey and is the responsibility of Surrey County Council.  I had a meeting this week with Sutton Councils road traffic engineer, responsible for flooding.  He pointed out to me, that much of the problem is caused, […]
