Sydenham Road is an upstart , developed after the arrival of the Railway.

Are they to indicate what it once was (Sydenham's high street) in a historic lamenting way? Of course not, though I do wonder about the timing of them. It'd make more sense to me to "unveil" them in a fanfare once Kirkdale comes to resemble a high street again. Whether the signs will impart a "gotta be here" marketing imperative for potential vendors - dunno. Is that what is hoped? I don't know "what follows what" in regeneration terms - maybe some help on this?
