Gridlock in Streatham Wells: New Low-Traffic Neighbourhood Sparks Bus Delays and Controversy - BNN Breaking

In the heart of South London's Streatham Wells, a new low-traffic neighbourhood (LTN) initiative designed to curb vehicular flow and promote greener modes of transportation has instead led to unintended consequences. What was intended as a 29-minute bus journey has now ballooned into a 121-minute ordeal, covering less than three miles. This significant delay is attributed to the LTN causing extensive queues of cars, particularly during peak hours, and has escalated into a broader debate about the efficacy and impact of LTNs on urban mobility and community life.
