Lib Dem councillors are encouraging residents living in the Dukes Avenue area to get involved in the new traffic consultation proposed by a Council sponsored focus group. The documents have been distributed over the weekend and offer two different proposals for calming.

The group, made up of officers, councillors and resident representatives has for the past two years been working hard on the proposals to spend £100,000 that has been assured by TfL following persistent pressure from Lib Dem GLA member, Lynne Featherstone. It is hoped that this will go some way to solve the traffic problems that have seen this area suffer from both excessively high volumes and speeds from through traffic.

Lib Dem traffic spokesperson Susan Oatway is delighted that the consultation has finally arrived and is keen for residents to get involved in the consultation:.

“I am delighted that the group has worked so constructively and the residents groups involved should be praised. I hope now that residents will now take this opportunity and get involved in the consultation.”

An exhibition of the two options for road calming will be held at Alexandra Park School, 14th June from 6-9pm.
