Following a consultation with local residents, the Council is introducing road closures at:
- Nevill Road between Osterley Road and Walford Road
- Clonbrock Road at its junction with Nevill Road
- Allen Road at its junction with Nevill Road.
The closures are aimed at reducing through-traffic and improving road safety in the Walford Road area, specifically Walford Road, Brighton Road, Beatty Road, and part of Nevill Road.
In this area, there were 33 recorded road traffic accidents resulting in personal injury in the three years to June 2019, and a further 20 crashes at the junctions of Walford, Brighton and Beatty roads with the A10.
The measures will be introduced on an experimental basis for up to 18 months, which gives local residents and businesses the opportunity to have their say on how the closures work in practice, which is taken into account before any decision is made on whether or not to make them permanent. The closures will maintain access for emergency vehicles.
