After a long campaign, it finally looks as though the 40mph speed limit from the county boundary to Northwood Golf Course may be reduced to 30mph. Thanks to NRA Committee member, Tony Ellis’s efforts, it now has the backing of LBH and the Metropolitan Police.
There is to be a survey of the road and a design scheme in order for the implementation of the new limit to be effective. The survey will need to be undertaken in term time in order to observe traffic at Holy Trinity School and to determine the effects of the new road layout at Ducks Hill Road. It is therefore hoped that the survey will be completed by early November. LBH have obtained funds from TfL to implement the recommendations and the length of time to complete the scheme will depend on the extent of the recommendations. We will bring residents more information when we have it.
