Council highway engineers recently accompanied us, at our request, on a tour of the ward, to assess various concerns raised by residents. Not all concerns could be taken on board, but the following are the main ones to be investigated further:
• Recent surveys of Hayes Lane revealed it to be the worst road in London for speeding – even though it doesn’t have the worst accident record. Engineers are drawing up plans for tackling the issue – particularly near the Club Gardens junction – prior to submitting a bid for funding.
• We are also working closely with the traffic engineers to find a solution to the dangerous junction of Bourne Way/Addington Road and Tiepigs Lane/Coney Hill Road. A number of engineering measures are being considered, subject to the necessary finances being in place.
• The bottom of Station Approach is also being re-examined.
