The council’s transport team have overtaken all the competition in London to be awarded London’s best transport borough at the London Transport awards. The pole position is the latest in a string of awards for the borough. At last year’s London transport awards the team showed they were on the right track by winning the most improved transport team, this was followed by most improved transport team for the whole country in October.

Cllr Bassam Mahfouz Labour’s Cabinet member for Transport and Environment, who was there to pick up the award with the team welcomed the news saying,

“This award shows the fantastic improvement in transport we have seen over the last two years.  We have been pushing at the boundaries of what is possible, focussing on road safety at accident hotspots, tackling traffic pinch points, pushing for step-free access at our stations and along bus routes as well as plenty of improvements for cycling, including our very first Cycle Hub on course to be delivered in the next couple of months. Over the last two years we have won three transport awards and to win best borough shows how committed we are to getting Ealing moving. I am really proud of the team this award reflects their hard work and commitment and I thank them for all they have done.”

Long awaited resurfacing works along Yeading Lane will begin on Monday 12th March 9.30am and should be completed by Thursday evening at 4pm.  The works will complete major investment in Northolt West End’s shopping parade along Yeading Lane which has seen new paving, trees, benches, bins, uplighting for the trees and parking bays to help make shopping along in the area better for all.  The works will take place between 9.30am-4pm on each of the days and will mean some lane closures and disruption to through traffic during this time.

Cllr Bassam Mahfouz said, “The condition of Yeading Lane has been a long-standing issue of concern for local residents, almost all of whom use this road.  It’s great to see the many improvements along the shopping parade but the icing on the cake will be the resurfacing of the main road itself, which will be welcomed by everyone in this part of Northolt.”

Yeading Lane was also recently reduced to 30mph and currently has signs designed by a local pupil to encourage drivers to slow down.  This means that all of the council’s controlled roads in the boroughs are 30 or below.
