Hounslow Council have sent a letter to residents informing them of a plan to restrict access into Swyncombe Avenue from Boston Manor Road.
The would limit access to buses and permit holders living on parts of Boston Manor Road, Boston Farm Cottages and Swyncombe Avenue.
It is believed by many that Swyncombe Avenue has seen a significant increase in traffic recently due to the Low Traffic Neighbourhoods instituted just over the border by Ealing Council.
Ealing borough councillor David Millcan said, “ This is a direct consequence of residents’ concerns about the increased traffic along their road as traffic drives from side of the Ealing LTNs to the other
“I have today written to Ealing Council Leader, Cllr Julian Bell, urging him to resist this change, as it will cause severe issues for Ealing’s residents as well as increased pollution due to the extra distances travelled.”
Hounslow Council have asked for views on the proposed measures before they begin a trial of the restrictions. Comments can be sent to email@example.com before Sunday, 17 January.
