Mattock Lane (W5) area is a low traffic neighbourhood (LTN) that was introduced in late-August 2020, on an experimental basis, made possible with funding from Transport for London (TfL). There is significant concern that large numbers of people will drive in order to avoid contact with others on public transport due to social distancing measures. This could potentially lead to a large increase in rat-run traffic through this area.
Residents in this neighbourhood will start to see the benefits of better quality, reduced volumes of through traffic in their neighbourhood, making it a safer, calmer and quieter environment for walking and cycling.
Description of the scheme
There will be a temporary installation of cycle racks and accompanying signage on the proximity to Ealing town centre at the following location:
- Mattock Lane/Culmington Road junction – full closure east of junction on Mattock Lane
The emergency services and refuse vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists will remain unaffected and continue to have access through the road closures. All other vehicles may have to find alternative routes. Residents will continue to have access by car to their properties, but this may be via alternative directions.
