Work to remove seven Low Traffic Neighbourhood Schemes (LTNs) in the borough of Ealing began this Wednesday (6 October). The council are taking away all planters, making good where fixings are in place and reinstating signage. Some of the planters have been found a new home outside West Ealing station.

Removal will be done in stages across the various zones and will take place between 10am and 3pm to avoid any clash with school drop off and pick up times.

The ANPR cameras enforcing the restrictions in the seven zones were switched off at midnight on 5 October. Any fines issued before this date will still apply.

Councillor Deirdre Costigan, deputy leader and cabinet member for climate action said: “We remain committed to active travel, but if we want to tackle the climate crisis we know we must take local people with us. We have pledged to be an open, transparent and inclusive council, and that includes being honest about what works and what doesn’t.

“We listened to the local people and as a result are removing seven LTNs but proposing to make permanent those in Adrienne Avenue and Montague Avenue/Deans Road where the majority of local people were in favour.”

Cllr David Millican, Conservative Spokesman said, “Conservative Councillors welcome the removal of the seven LTN’s which the Labour Administration inflicted on residents without any thought to the misery they caused. It has taken three consultations for the Labour Council to finally listen. Residents support efforts to tackle climate crisis but, it cannot be at the expense of increasing journey times and pushing traffic onto smaller roads, which the LTNs were doing.”

The LTNs being removed are:

• Olive Road (LTN 08)

• West Ealing North (LTN 20)

• Acton Central (LTN 25)

• Loveday Road (LTN 30)

• Junction Road (LTN 32)

• Bowes Road (LTN 34)

• Mattock Lane (LTN 35)
