Ealing Council invites residents to give their views on travel in Northolt as part of Visions for Northolt

Ealing Council is inviting residents to give their thoughts on travelling in Northolt, and in particular, on initial designs for improvements to Ealing and Kensington Roads as part of its consultation around current and future needs of those living in the town as well as people visiting.

Last year, the council unveiled Visions for Northolt which it says is about “putting local people in the driving seat of change. It is all about ensuring that future investment reflects the priorities, needs and aspirations of the local community.”

Ealing Council and Transport for London (TfL) have secured £7.23m from Central Government Levelling-up Funding for Northolt which it says will be “focused on improvements along the Church / Mandeville Road (A312) and Ealing / Kensington Road corridors.”

Now the council wishes to find out from residents and businesses what they think of initial plans for active travel and other road topics. The closing date to express comments is 21 November 2022.

Councillor Deirdre Costigan, the council’s cabinet member for climate action, said: “As part of our new Active Travel Charter, Ealing Council is putting resident’s views firmly at the heart of all of our transport plans. We’ve had some brilliant ideas from local people about how we can improve roads and pavements in Northolt so that they are safer and more pleasant for everyone.”

She added: “From increasing opportunities for active travel with bike lanes and better pedestrian crossings, to improved access to public transport and safer turnings for motorists, this project should make a difference for all road users. I hope residents will take a look at the feedback we’ve had so far and help us to work together to make Northolt even better.”

Liberal Democrat Councillor Gary Malcolm, leader of the Opposition on Ealing Council told EALING.NEWS: “I would hope the Council genuinely listens to residents to hear ideas about what the problems are and how they can best be solved without imposing transport schemes on people without consulting.”

Councillor Malcolm added: “Also when the infrastructure is changed we need to ensure that the experiences for those walking especially those with movement disabilities are taken into account.”
