The area surrounding Shortlands station could be set for a revamp after years of concerns from residents and councillors.

Walking, cycling and road safety in the congested streets near the station could be improved if Bromley Council agrees to bid for cash from TfL.

The council is planning to ask for funding from TfL’s Liveable Neighbourhood scheme in order to enhance the streets surrounding Shortlands, with up to £10m available for each borough in the capital.

If given the green light to bid, the council will find out by February if it has been successful.

A report explains: “Key improvements would include better crossings and footpaths to encourage walking to school and measures to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured, a key borough priority.”

The exact details of the scheme are still to be decided, and councillors were set to debate the plan on Wednesday before the Times went to print.
