Streets For People Improvements in Pitshanger
Council promises the annual Light up the Lane won't be disrupted
Work starts next week to improve Pitshanger Lane and make it easier and safer for shoppers and motorist to get around.
Ealing Council is carrying out the work in conjunction with TfL, which has invested £600,000 in the Streets for People scheme.
The project follows consultation in December 2007 that showed 77% of respondents were in favour of plans to improve the area.
Work is expected to be completed by April 2010, but will be suspended from the end of November until the beginning of January to prevent any disruption to Christmas shopping and to ensure the Light up the Lanes event can take place unhindered.
Cabinet member for Regeneration and Transport, Councillor David Millican, said: “Pitshanger Lane is a very attractive niche shopping area already. I’m pleased it is now being further improved to make it an even more inviting place for shoppers and residents.”
Some side roads will be closed for a short time to allow the works to be carried out, but
Pitshanger Lane will not be fully closed at any stage.
