Please send in any traffic incidents

Croydon Council require evidence-based data for any traffic infringements or damage to the WURA roads. This isn’t just for the HGVs involved in the construction work, but should cover any obstruction or blockage, except those for the short period required for a delivery.

Construction traffic is required to conform to the Council stated rules which now form part of each site’s logistics plan. Vehicles should enter at the Kenley Station end of Welcomes Road and depart via Hayes Lane by turning right.

Any HGVs travelling in the opposite direction, reversing or maneuvering to turn (except, of course, to access their site) are contravening these rules and should be reported.


Any damage caused to the road surface or kerbside should also be reported.

Please email details to the WURA secretary at welcomesanduplandsroads@gmail.com. To be a useful report, the following information MUST be included:

  • The name of the contractor on the vehicle and its registration number – ideally a photograph showing one or the other.
  • The location of the incident (outside which house number or junction, for example)
  • The date and time of the incident
  • A statement regarding the incident – whether the vehicle was moving, reversing, parked, the direction of travel, etc.
  • If the incident is associated with damage to the road or property frontage, a picture of the damage caused.

AGM 2020

Because of the COVID 19 situation the Committee felt that it would be unwise to hold an AGM this year and noted that Kendra had made a similar decision.

The Committee therefore met on 1st June using Zoom. Click here to view the resulting report on the meeting which was  based on matters arising from the 2019 AGM and updating members on the current situation. The website stats referenced in the minutes can be viewed here

Signed-off accounts are now also included here.

Your comments are welcome and you can email myself or the Chairman with them.

Kind regards and keep safe.

Richard Russell
Secretary WURA

NO PARKING!

Please respect the NO Parking rules on Welcomes and Uplands Road.

Our roads are privately maintained public highways with a designated footpath running along Welcomes Road. Parking on our roads for more than a few minutes is an offence and visitors should park on drives where possible. The roads must not be obstructed in terms of the Highways Act and this includes members’ frontages.

Resurfacing work completed successfully

Allfreys completed the resurfacing work between 43 and 56 Welcomes Road on 8th August.

The newly done surface has stood up well to the subsequent heavy rain.

A further stretch was done on 21st August, extending the newly surfaced are from around no. 41 to nearly the junction with Zigzag Road.
