CENSUS OF TRAFFIC

In accordance with arrangements made with the Ministry of Transport, a census of traffic was taken at several points in this district from August 17th to 23rd, and I have attached to my report a copy of the totals as arrived at from the sheets by enumerators.

Yours obediently,
BURNETT BULLOCK, P.A.S.I.
Engineer and Surveyor.

From measuring the distances referred to, the survey points were:

Figges Marsh, London Road near junction with Victoria Road.

Streatham Road, near entrance to Pascall’s chocolate factory, opposite Uckfield Grove today,

Croydon Road, about halfway between Ravensbury Arms and Beddington Lane/windmill Road crossroads.

Western Road, north of Mount Road/Lavender Avenue junction, near where Mortlake Drive is now.


Minutes of meetings held by the Mitcham Urban District Council are available on request from the Merton Heritage and Local Studies Centre at Morden Library.
