Sutton Council has secured £1.86m of TfL funding for the Beddington North TfL Major Scheme project. This is being matched by council funding of £1.7m, to provide a total budget of £3.56m.
Sutton Council have developed designs for the Beddington North Major Scheme in partnership with TfL and in consultation with the local community and business improvement district. These designs focus on delivering improvements to Beddington Lane and Hilliers Lane, making it better for pedestrians and cyclists, and providing more travel choices for local businesses and residents. The project will also significantly enhance the appearance of the area.
The final proposal and illustrative drawings can be viewed whilst the works are taking place:

Beddington Village - The works in the Beddington Village area are due to be completed by the end of March 2019.
- We plan to install a new zebra crossing on Beddington Lane within Beddington Village, overnight, on Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 February 2019. Work will take place between 9pm and 5am. During this time Beddington Lane will be closed between A232 Croydon Road and Harrington Close, for through traffic with signed diversions in place. If residents are trying to access their property or the Emergency Services need to get through, they will be allowed through.
Beddington Industrial Area - Works are currently underway along Beddington Lane. As some of the proposed works rely on a third party land e.g. Asda, Thames Water and private industrial estates, the works will be implemented in segments as soon as the access to private land is secured by the Council.
Further information on the temporary road closures will be updated regularly on this page.

Beddington Village Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGVs) restrictions extension Traffic Management Order update
The Council carried out the Statutory Consultation in March 2019 about the proposed Traffic Management Order PR 1063. Given the level of interest and the sensitive nature of the proposals, we have now taken the decision to defer the rollout of these proposed restrictions for a few months. This will allow us to address questions and concerns raised, do further engagement with affected businesses, and undertake additional monitoring to ensure the evidence base for the scheme is robust, as well as allow the completion of various other roadworks in the area which are impacting the network.
For further information, please read a copy of the letter issued on 2 May 2019.
