|Improvements to Ealing Road and A4 Junction|
Consultation on proposed junction improvements to help traffic flow
TfL is planning to modernise the traffic signal equipment at the junction of the A4 Great West Road with Ealing Road. The existing equipment which manages the operation of the junction is approaching the end of its operational life, and is in need of upgrading.
The current method of control has traffic circulating the roundabout receiving a green signal at the same time as Ealing Road, which means that traffic from Ealing Road is in direct conflict with traffic on the roundabout. To meet the current design and safety guidance this cannot continue so a new method of control will be introduced to separate the north and south flow to avoid conflicting movements. However, traffic modelling exercises showed that implementing an additional signal phase to allow north and south traffic to flow separately would create a build up of traffic at the junction.
In order to prevent this, the proposals are to change the layout of the junction to effectively manage existing traffic flows:
