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 outside Beddington Village Hall area, including an air quality monitoring station, are due to be completed by the end of March 2020.
Beddington Industrial Area - Works are currently underway along Beddington Lane outside the propose Prologis Park and near Bath House Road. 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.
During early 2020, there have been several emergency works carried out by UKPN and SGN. These had an impact on the Beddington North Major Scheme works, and delayed the programme.
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. Following the end of consultation, the Council issued a copy of the letter on 2 May 2019. The Council remains committed in principle to introducing the HGV restriction, but is legally bound to consider objections received and to this end, more data collection has taken place to better evidence that the scheme can properly deliver its objectives. Therefore, the HGV restriction is still on hold until the additional data collection outputs have been analysed. We will be analysing this evidence by March 2020, with a view to formally determining the objections and implementing the scheme (should that be the outcome of the determination) before completion of the remaining civil works.
