Railings by the canalside

Posted: 15/04/09

A large stretch of the railings between the canal towpath and open space by the Warwick Estate have been removed as part of the work on the Canalside Open Space - encouraging cyclists to go very fast down the path. Geese from the canal have been "leaving messages" on the grass which is a health problem if children play there. 

 

After the Warwick Estate Residents Association raised this issue, we have been working with Westbourne Forum and the Council’s Parks department to make this area safer for everyone. A new chicane to slow down cyclists has been installed but we know cyclists are still going too fast. Other changes are coming soon, including line markings and signposting.
