Harrow Road Kensal Green Proposed Local Safety Scheme DA Report

Closed 28 Jun 2019

Opened 27 Jun 2019

Overview

This report summarises the outcome of the public consultation for proposals to implement a pedestrianised phased signal crossing and a refuge island in Harrow Road, NW10. A detailed plan of the proposal is attached in Appendix A. The scheme is part of Brent’s Local Implementation Plan (LIP) and aims to reduce the number and severity of accidents along this section of Harrow Road, NW10. This is in accordance with local and regional transport priorities and the overarching Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS).
 

Why We Are Consulting

Improving road safety on the borough’s road network forms a major part of the Council’s policy and is in line with the Mayor for London’s strategy and commitment for improving road safety across London. Each year Council identify roads and locations in Brent with the highest number of Personal Injury Accidents (PIAs) and look at introducing road safety measures to reduce the number of collisions, improve pedestrian movement and safety.

The Council implemented a signalised junction with pedestrian phased crossings at Harrow Road junction with Wrottesley Road in 2008 in order to reduce accidents and improve pedestrian access at the junction.

However, the local ward councillors and Brent Council’s Road Safety Team which liaises with the local schools to improve road safety, have raised concerns about school children crossing on the western side of Harrow Road at the junction. This location does not have a pedestrian crossing facility and it could become heavily trafficked during busy hours.
