TFL: from Tooting plans https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/roads/tooting-town-centre/
"As part of this we are proposing a type of pavement treatment at side road junctions called a ‘continuous footway’, which is already widely used in northern Europe. This is where the pavement continues straight across a side road junction to give the impression of one continuous pavement. This treatment has been installed at other locations along the Transport for London Road Network, including at the junction of Upper Tooting Road/Stapleton Road. However this is the first time that we are proposing it is used consistently along a large stretch of road."
