There's been criticism over a new road system due to be introduced in Ealing Town Centre.
As part of a road safety trial from next Monday (18th April) drivers will no longer be able to turn left onto Uxbridge Road from Longfield Avenue.
There will also be a ban on motor vehicles turning right from Uxbridge Road onto Longfield Avenue.
However the changes have been met with anger. Local residents believe it will lead to more traffic problems in the area with cars being diverted onto other roads.
Councillor Anthony Young, Conservative Spokesman said:
“The proposed changes is only pushing traffic on to more dangerous routes and regrettably, the Council has refused point blank to consult with local residents, who are all against the proposal. These changes are a vanity project by Council Officers to the detriment of the local area.
