RAIL, BUS, METHODS OF PAYMENTS AND ROADS


RAIL

RIDDLESDOWN STATION IS IN LONDON TRAVELCARD ZONE 6. UPPER WARLINGHAM IS ALSO IN ZONE 6 AND IS THE LAST STATION ON THIS LINE, WITHIN THE LONDON ZONES 1 to 6.


For those residents who are not regular users of Riddlesdown Station - Southern and Thameslink do at times run trains with 10 to 12 carriages. To be sure of getting off at Riddlesdown (from London), ensure you are in carriages 1 to 9, because these trains are longer than the platform and the doors on carriages 10 to 12 will not open. Next stop is Upper Warlingham! Carriage 6 is usually by the exit at Riddlesdown on trains from London.

GTR- Rail Passenger Benefit Fund

Possible Improvements for Riddlesdown

Following the disruption that rail passengers faced in the summer of 2018, the Secretary of State for Transport has announced that Govia Thameslink (GTR) would contribute £15m towards a passenger benefit fund which aims to provide tangible improvements for passengers on the GTR network. The fund was established following the disruption experienced by passengers during the implementation of the May 2018 timetable (it is basically a fine that GTR would have had to pay to the Govt).

The Secretary of State nominated Bim Afolami, Henry Smith and Heidi Allen, as MPs representing different parts of the GTR network, to work with GTR and develop a plan for how the fund is allocated and consulted on. The MPs asked for decisions on how the Fund was spent to be made at as local level as possible. The fund, therefore has been allocated to passengers based on the tiers of the additional industry compensation scheme which were agreed following the disruption caused by the May 2018 timetable issues.

Passengers at stations in our area have been allocated the following amounts:

Riddlesdown will get £80,000.

Sanderstead and Upper Warlingham will also get £80k but some London to Brighton main line stations, like Coulsdon, Town, Purley Oaks and Reedham will only get £30,000. The Caterham line stations (inc Kenley) will get £30k but Purley will get £50k.

The RRA representatives on the East Surrey Transport Committee (ESTC) are therefore looking how any improvements can be made at Riddlesdown to spend this £80k.

‘Tornado’ Steam Train Passes Through Riddlesdown - September 2013


LOCAL BUS ROUTE AND TIMES

Local Bus Route and Frequency

Bus 412 (Arriva) - Updated 3/11/19


The permanent changes happened in central Croydon to the 412 bus route on Saturday 2 November 2019, with the bus service no longer running between Katharine Street and West Croydon, (including the Whitgift Centre stops in Wellesley Rd) and vice versa.


As Michelle Wildish from TfL said at the RRA AGM in May, they are constantly reviewing all bus services in London. The way people travel around London is constantly changing and over the past five years usage of route 412 has dropped by 12 per cent. Unfortunately, it is the usual story - use it or lose it.


The new route (and timetable) from 2/11/19 is on this TfL link:

In summary - From Croydon, the 412 starts at the Croydon Flyover High Street, and travels along High Str, South End, Selsdon Rd, Upper Selsdon Rd, Addington Rd (stop for Selsdon), Rectory Park, Mitchley Ave, Downs Court Rd, Godstone Rd, & ends on Brighton Rd at the Purley Hospital.

From Purley, the service is in reverse direction from Purley Downlands Precint and terminates in Katharine Street, Croydon.


Frequency (approximately)

Weekdays & Saturdays: Early; 20 mins, Peak; 15 mins, Daytime; 15 mins, Evenings; 20 mins, Late Evenings; 30 mins.

Frequency Sundays; 30 mins.

ROADS


Renewal of the Sanderstead Rd Rail Bridge, South Croydon

Updated 18/11/19

Although outside of the RRA area, this road closure to replace the main rail bridge in Sanderstead Rd by the Recreation Ground (between Broomhall Rd and Purley Rd/Wyche Grove) could have an impact on some local Riddlesdown residents. Especially for those who drive along this part of Sanderstead Rd to gain access to and from the Brighton Rd and also pedestrians who wish to gain access to the Parkside Doctors Practice in Wyche Grove and the shops in Brighton Rd. Preliminary works have now commenced.


This is a letter that Network Rail have issued giving the timetable for the works on page 2.


The works are planned to come into effect from 18 September 2019 and if all goes to plan will last for 4 months, until 27 January 2020. There will be road and footway closures but these will only apply at times when the work is in operation. This bridge is on the main London to Brighton/south coast/Gatwick rail link/, so these works will therefore have an impact on the train timetable between London and Brighton/south coast/Gatwick. This is the link for Network Rail’s planned engineering works. Click on the date of travelling.


Information in a six slide presentation has now been received from Network Rail on 18 November 2019.


Or view individual slides ;   1         2       3        4         5         6


The East Grinstead/Uckfield to London rail line (inc Riddlesdown station) should generally be unaffected by these works. But there are engineering works for London Stations over Xmas/New Year so check on National Rail’s website before travelling.

20/30mph Speed signs in Riddlesdown

New 27/2/19


The RRA have raised with the Council that after nearly a year for the 20 mph road scheme in the South of the Borough, that there is still no 30 mph terminal sign at the end of Riddlesdown Rd, at the junction with Brighton Rd (by Purley Oaks Depot). We have asked for this 30 mph terminal sign to be erected.


We have also raised with the Council that as many new vehicles now have in built cameras and speed sign readers, that when you come up Downs Court Rd which is 30 mph (and/or come out of St James' Rd) that the 20 mph signs on the sharp left bend into Mitchley Ave are being read by the vehicle cameras, where Downs Court Rd continues into the cul-de-sac. As a consequence when travelling along Mitchley Ave (which is 30 mph) the speed displayed on the car dashboard is 20 mph. The next change of speed limit, if following the A2022 going towards West Wickham, is at the bottom of Gravel Hill to 40mph.


There is also the same issue with the 20 mph sign on the junction of Riddlesdown Rd to Brighton Rd and for traffic going around Capella Court towards Purley, staying on the Brighton Rd that have picked up the 20 mph sign on the Riddlesdown Rd junction.


Some cars are also fitted with speed limiters (when operated), so a vehicle could then travel at 20mph on a 30 mph road!


We have asked for the these 20 mph signs at both locations to be adapted/re-located so vehicle cameras don't read them.


The Council have responded that it has been passed to the team responsible, for their attention.


If anyone knows of other incorrect terminal signs and/or missing in Riddlesdown, then please let us know.

A22 (Godstone Rd) - Red route proposals to commence in 2019

Updated 3/2/19

Transport for London (TfL) consulted with residents and stakeholders in the summer of 2017 about proposals to changes to the double and single line red route on the A22 (Godstone Rd) from Foxley Hill Road to Old Barn Lane (at the Borough boundary to Whyteleafe).


They also proposed other works which included changes to bus stop facilities: improved zebra crossings; and changes to road layouts at some side road and designated parking areas. The RRA did submit our comments at the time, regarding these proposals.


Following careful consideration of the consultation responses received, TfL have decided to proceed with the scheme as proposed, with the some alterations. These works will commence in early 2019 and will run to 2020. Their full report is on this link


Mitchley Ave/Rectory Park - Accidents

Update 29/11/17

The resurfacing works to lay a better anti skid surface were completed overnight, (28/29 November 2017) on the bend to Rectory Park/Mitchley Ave. This is following extensive pressure from the RRA to Croydon Council, to do something at this location due to all the accidents (at least eight) since November 2016.

Hopefully this may now reduce the number of accidents on this bend, especially in the wet. Please let the RRA know if further accidents occur at this location and we will take it up with Croydon Council again.

There is now also a speed visor (displaying speeds above 30 mph), on the down section of the hill to Rectory Park, before the bend.



















Update 16/9/17

Another accident on 15/9/17, at the bend on Rectory Park/Mitchley Ave. This is at least eight accidents now since last November (we recently learnt about another one on 20 May 2017). The RRA have advised the Council, and the sooner they lay an anti skid surface the better (which the RRA have been asking for, for many months now). It might not solve the problem but it may help. Thanks to Lynne Dennis for the photo.





















Update 2/8/17

The RRA have been made aware of yet another accident on the bend of Rectory Park/Mitchley Ave at 6am on Sunday 30 July. We are told that two cars coming down the hill were involved and possibly the second car went into the back of the first car. The Police did attend. Yet again the road was wet, with heavy rain overnight Sat/Sun! This is now the sixth accident since November 2016, on this bend and all in the wet!


We have again written to the Council and made them aware of this latest accident and asked them when further works are to be done to make this section of road safe. Our e-mail has been acknowledged and we await a full response.


We were advised on 17 May, following a written question from Ward Cllr Tim Pollard to Cabinet member Cllr Stuart King and Stuart King replied;

”I have asked our engineers to consider the introduction of anti-skid surfacing on this bend and include this in their current programme of works. I have also asked that officers look at what other measures could be introduced to help address this problem in addition to the following measures which we have already introduced at this location:”


We have also raised with the Council about the following items/repairs that are required:







We will advise when we get a full reply!


Update 2/5/17

Yet again there has been another accident on the bend of Rectory Park/Mitchley Ave on Sunday evening (30/4/17), when the road was again wet (red car in photo)!


We are told this is now the 5th accident in this vicinity since November 2016. Three accidents have been in the wet, with motorists coming down the hill and losing control on the bend. Two accidents have occurred on Mitchley Ave going towards the hill in Rectory Park because of parked vehicles near the bend (silver car in photo is one accident). Accidents close to the bend also seem to be happening more regularly because of parked vehicles on Mitchley Ave.


The RRA have had a lot of e-mail correspondence with the Council Officers and the Labour Cabinet Member for Highways since last November but the Council are not prepared to put in, an anti skid surface, armco crash barrier, vehicle activated electronic “Slow down” signs etc, before the bend, etc, as requested by the RRA. The Council believe the white dragons teeth markings and other signage, chevrons and centre cross hatching they have laid previously, are sufficient!


The RRA have written to the Council again after this latest accident, to highlight the serious issues here (there have been numerous accidents on this bend and closeby over the years) and we hope they will do more road safety works soon, before a motorist, passenger, or a pedestrian is killed. Cllr Tim Pollard (Sanderstead Ward Cllr) has also now raised a Council question (2/5/17) about the safety on this bend with Transport Cabinet Member, Cllr Stuart King and asking him to intervene.


The Council have also told us they have not managed to secure funding from Tfl to resurface both Mitchley Ave and Rectory Park this year. So we are going to have to put up with all the ruts and rough road surfaces on these two stretches of road!!!

Update 24/11/16

Yet another road traffic collision occurred on 16 November at 6.30am, in Mitchley Ave on the bend with Rectory Park


It was raining again at the time and most incidents seem to occur here, when raining. Yet again a vehicle has come down the hill of Rectory Park and lost control on the exit and taken out the lamp column (for the second time in 3 months) by the woodland about 75 metres after the bend.

Following this latest accident, the RRA have had extensive correspondence with two Council Officers since (copying in local Councillors and Cllr Stuart King the Labour Cabinet member responsible for Transport and Environment and Riddlesdown Collegiate). Cllr King has responded that he will take this up with the Director of Streets at his next briefing with him.


The RRA made a number of suggestions to Officers, which included improving the road signage, laying an anti skid road surface just before, on the bend and just after, installing an Armco barrier to protect pedestrians and additional chevron boards. Repositioning the lamp column damaged twice now, and additional road markings were another request. We also pointed about a number of other road defects locally.


The Council Officers have rejected virtually all our suggestions! They did say they have made a number of additional safety measures at this bend over the years.


However, Officers have said they will look to install another “SLOW” road marking just before the bend, and installing white marked dragons teeth on the road, to highlight the danger ahead, look at the signage, and check on the condition of the road markings. Something, but overall not a good result and the RRA will keep pressing the Council on this. In the meantime, if any other further incidents occur here, please post it on our Facebook page and with photos if possible (or e-mail us ) and we will refer them to the Council again.


Regarding the speed camera further along in Mitchley Ave (near the shops) we have been told this is to be replaced soon. Safety cameras are controlled and maintained by the London Safety Camera Partnership (LSCP), which is made up of Transport for London (TfL), the Metropolitan Police and Her Majesty’s Courts Service (HMCS). The LSCP have informed Officers that the safety (speed) camera was removed following damage caused by vandalism, as well as all the road speed sensors being removed when the section of road by the camera was re-surfaced a few years ago. The Council have no control over these cameras.
