West Ealing North LTN Latest To Be Implemented

Road closures on Endsleigh Road and Green Man Lane

The latest Low Traffic Neighbourhood Scheme (LTN) is set to be implemented this week in West Ealing.

The traffic order for West Ealing North LTN was issued on the 8 September allowing the council to commence work on the scheme from 16 September.

The council are closing Endsleigh Road at its junction with Felix Road and Green Man Lane south of its junction with Singapore Road.

In addition they will introduce one-way working in Alexandria Road between Connaught Road and its junction with Felix Road in a general westerly direction. Pedal cyclists will continue to be able to use this road in both directions.

This will be enforced by a temporary installation of wooden planters, removable bollards and accompanying signage.

A School Street has been created around St John’s Primary School on Green Man Lane. The north of Green Man Lane and Singapore Road junction will be closed with a temporary restriction on motorised traffic at school drop-off and pick-up times (Monday-Friday 8.30-9.30am and 3-4pm). Resident permit vehicles are exempt from the restrictions and remain unaffected. The barrier will be moveable and managed by the school.

The emergency services and refuse vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists will remain unaffected and continue to have access through the road closures.

The council say the LTN has been introduced because there is significant concern that large numbers of people will drive in order to avoid contact with others on public transport due to social distancing measures. They believe this could potentially lead to a large increase in rat-run traffic through this area.

Residents in the area say they have contacted the council and local councillors about how the scheme will operate but have not received a response.

An online petition against LTNs in Ealing has been signed by over 8,000 people. A counter petition in support of the new schemes has, at the time of writing, over 500 signatures.
