Council Blocks Sydenham Roads Before Consultation Ends

The local Conservatives are opposed to the plans, due to concerns that it will increase pollution and congestion on both Sydenham High Street and Mayow Road - which have three schools close by.


The Conservatives are also concerned that this increased traffic could lead to more accidents. Conservative spokesperson for Sydenham, Helena Croft, criticised the council saying: "What is the point of the consultation if Labour-run Lewisham Council will just do as it pleases before the consultation is even finished. These barriers are a physical reminder of Labour's arrogance and complacency locally"
