As intrigued as numerous residents raising the matter with Osterley and Spring Grove councillors, inquiries were made of the council’s traffic team regarding the counting hardware appearing on roads in the southern part of the Ward. Here’s what has been learnt so far.
Residents from different parts of our Ward often contact council officers and councillors about speeding and rat running, for example; Osterley Road is a regular as is Northumberland Avenue and, lately, The Grove.
All of the roads mentioned fall within the area of Spring Grove and North Isleworth that is currently under review for potential traffic reduction measures, broadly all roads to the south of A4, north of A315 London Road, west of Syon Lane and east of the Piccadilly Line.
Officers have advised that this is a multi-year project with the surveys, background and feasibility work being undertaken this financial year (to April 2023). For the next financial year they will look to engage with councillors, residents and other stakeholders on potential intervention measures with a view to perhaps trialling any measures that looked promising.
Obviously, Ward councillors here will be maintaining a close watch on developments here and insist on clear and extensively analysed consultation on any proposals arising.
Anything new in the interim will be reported here.
