Ealing Council began work on the traffic signals at a West Ealing junction today (8 May) to make it safer for pedestrians.

Junction on Uxbridge road

Green man pedestrian crossings are being installed on all arms of Lido Junction where Uxbridge Road meets with Northfield Avenue and Drayton Green Road.

The junction has the highest pedestrian accident rate in Ealing and residents gave overwhelming support for proposals to make the junction safer, particularly for the young, elderly and mobility impaired, while avoiding significant impact on traffic flow.

The council has been working with Transport for London (TfL) to make the junction safer for pedestrians. Other changes already implemented to improve traffic flow include changes to parking restrictions near the junction and the relocation of a bus stop on Drayton Green Road.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place from today and are expected to remain in place for around six weeks.

Delays are expected during the six week programme, but work will be carried out between 9.30am and 3.30pm each day to avoid rush hour traffic. If possible motorists are advised to avoid the area during these times.  Alternative routes will be displayed at the junction.

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for Transport and Environment said: “Having green man crossings on each arm of the junction will make it much easier and safer to cross here and will make a huge difference to everyone who lives and works in West Ealing.

“We are working with Transport for London to keep traffic delays to a minimum during the work.”
