The "new" traffic lights at the junction of Green Lane, Eastbury Road and Station Approach have generated much discussion and much adverse comment. In 2011 Hillingdon Borough Council commissioned an independent report into the scheme, which was undertaken by a firm of consultants, Steer Davies Gleave. The report has now been completed and published.
The Northwood Residents' Association considers that the report is disappointing and the recommendations do not go far enough. Studies took place between 0800 and 0900 and between 1700 and 1800, ignoring the period between 1530 and 1700 when some of the worst school-related congestion takes place. It can only be hoped that the limited improvements that have been suggested will make the junction work more smoothly, particularly in conjunction with the mini-roundabout at Maxwell Road.
