TACKLING RAT-RUNNING IN WOODFIELD ROAD

Residents in Woodfield Road have asked Local Labour Councillors to look into traffic problems in the Harrow Road/Great Western Road area. As one resident told us:

 

“Woodfield Road is a small side street used as a rat run because there is no turning into Great Western Road off the Harrow Road.  Its cobbled surface is unsuitable for heavy traffic, the noise is louder and the vibrations more intense - a heavy truck going down the street shakes the buildings violently, creating ripples in a cup of coffee. Satnav is part of the problem - if you google directions from Maida Vale tube station to Westbourne Park tube - a straight run down Elgin Avenue into Great Western Road - traffic is directed via Chippenham Road, Harrow Rd  and into Woodfield Road.  This is clearly mad!  It means we get traffic going from both the East and North."
