TfL Bow to Pressure from your Conservative Councillors and Introduce Enforcement

Finally, following months of pressing by your Councillors, TfL have agreed to introduce enforcement cameras to stop banned turns into the Ponsonbys from John Islip Street. The cameras will be live shortly. 

The banned turns were introduced following the introduction of the Cycle Superhighway on Vauxhall Bridge Road to stop traffic “rat running” and came following objections from residents and representations from your Councillors.

Drivers have been flouting the illegal turns many times a day and making life a misery for residents on Ponsonby Terrace and Ponsonby Place. 

Councillor David Harvey, reported “It was obvious that the Cycle Superhighway would generate “rat running” along the Ponsonbys which is why we demanded introduction of the banned turns in the first place. However, TfL have been very slow to enforce the change and ensure residents do not suffer. 

He added “On behalf of residents, we have made sure the Ponsonbys are not forgotten by TfL”
