Details Emerge of Council's LTN Expansion Plans

Fifteen new schemes on the drawing board mainly in east of borough

A map has been published showing details of how Ealing Council hopes to increase the number of Low Traffic Neighbourhood Schemes across the borough.

A new round of funding is being made available by central government which is encouraging councils to continue to implement these schemes. In the London area it will be disbursed by Transport for London.

The map shows that 15 new schemes are being planned, predominantly in the east of the borough but with very few in Southall or Greenford.

Expansion of the controversial schemes in West Ealing and Hanwell looks set to continue with LTNs marked around Humes Avenue and another in Bramley Road/Airedale Road.

There are also three adjacent schemes in the planning stage at Hanger Lane/Gatscombe Mews, The Grange/The Grove and Hamilton Road.

Further to the north a scheme is envisaged at Hillcrest Road/Brentham Way and Brunswick Road/Sandall.

In the Ealing Common area two schemes are being planned along Creffield Road. There will be two more schemes in Acton plus the already announce Ealing Golf Links LTN.

The only scheme planned for Greenford is one covering a very small area around Goring Way although there is a larger scheme just to the south planned for Kings Avenue.

Northolt is to get three schemes around Old Ruislip Road, Alderney Gardens and Hawtrey Avenue.

No further details of any road closures or other access restrictions in these planned LTNs is yet available. The council have said that designs will be informed by feedback given by local residents on the Commonplace platform.

It is expected that the schemes, as with the previous ones, would be implemented by the use of an Experimental Traffic Order in line with government guidelines. This would mean that there would be no consultation with residents in advance of implementation other than a week long notification period and then a trial of the scheme of between 6 to 18 months would take place.

Residents can visit the low traffic neighbourhoods' page of the council’s website for further information on the schemes.

You can email feedback to, or post them to the Highways Service, Perceval House, 14-16 Uxbridge Road, W5 2HL, quoting reference ORD XXX.

An online petition against LTNs in Ealing has been signed by over 10,000 people. A counter petition in support of the new schemes has, at the time of writing, over 800 signatures.
