Railton Low Traffic Neighbourhood Enforcement

We appreciate that it takes some time to get used to new road changes. We have allowed time for this but enforcement has now begun to protect residents against the small minority of drivers that are not complying with the measures.

From 18th January 2021 onward, enforcement begins and you may be fined £130 if you drive through the measures located on:

1. Atlantic Road, between Vining Street and Coldharbour Lane

2. Railton Road, by Marcus Garvey Way

3. Railton Road, between no. 239 and 243, by Herne Place

4. Shakespeare Road, North of the junction with Mayall Road

5. St Matthews Road, immediately outside the Tenants and Residents hall

6. Rattray Road, immediately south of junction with Jelf Road

7. Dalberg Road, immediately south of junction with Jelf Road

8. Trelawn Road, immediately east of junction with Effra Road

What happens next?

An ‘experimental traffic order’ covering the measures came into effect on 18 January 2021. The council will continue to monitor the low traffic neighbourhood in line our published Monitoring Strategy and will shortly write to you again with data from the first independent traffic assessment that has taken place. If after 6 months the LTN is meeting its objectives, we may consider making the scheme permanent, only after conducting a public consultation.

All monitoring will be collated, analysed and published for the general public on this Commonplace. Here, you will also find details of the help we can offer you if you want to switch to sustainable modes of transport like walking or cycling. If you wish to make an objection to the Experimental Traffic Order this should be directed to bpoulter@lambeth.gov.uk with the grounds of your objection stated.
