Eight weeks of planned roadworks are set to begin next Monday (24 May) on Windmill Road and Boston Park Road.

The works are being done by Hounslow Council and are expected to lead to a significant amount of congestion in the area.

It will be necessary to close road, footways, restrict parking and use temporary traffic signals.

The council is temporarily introducing a ‘No Entry’ restriction on motor vehicles entering Swyncombe Avenue at the junction with Boston Manor Road which it says is necessary to mitigate the impact of the works.

Many residents believe the closure will serve as a dry run but the council is offering assurances that this temporary closure of the junction does not mean a decision has been made to make it permanent. The council says that the decision making process on this is on-going and an announcement will be made in due course.

It is believed that Low Traffic Neighbour Schemes implemented by neighbouring Ealing Council have displaced traffic onto Swyncombe Avenue which has resulted in restrictions at this junction being considered.

The roadworks when completed will see the creation of a contraflow cycle route along Boston Park Road to provide an eastbound cycle route and the increase of footway widths on Windmill Road. The latter will require the removal of some trees.

New informal pedestrian crossings will also be installed on Windmill Road, north of the A4 to improve pedestrian routes to and from Brentford Station. This will require the closure of Windmill Road. These closures will be handled on a staggered bases to ensure that access to properties will be maintained at all times.

Single yellow line restrictions are to be replaced with double yellows on Windmill Road north of the A4. Plans to do likewise south of the A4 have been scrapped following feedback from residents.

There will also be a HGV ban implemented on the southern part of Windmill Road between Boston Manor Road and the A4.

The work is being handled by the council’s contractor, Hounslow Highways, and any issues can be raised with it through its web site or by phoning 020 8583 2000.
