Published: Thursday, 29th October 2020
Following an announcement that Thames Water have extended their emergency works on Acton Lane into late November, Hounslow Council will suspend access restrictions at Turnham Green Terrace with immediate effect.
Councillor Hanif Khan, the Cabinet Member for Transport said,
“It is only too clear that the combination of Turnham Green Terrace’s experimental traffic order, and the emergency work being done by Thames Water is having a serious and detrimental impact on traffic across the area, affecting residents and businesses. As a result we will suspend the experimental access restrictions with immediate effect.”.
“We have been clear throughout that we are listening, and this is further evidence that we mean precisely that. The immediate suspension of these access restrictions is the necessary and right thing to do.
“The independent review process will continue as planned during the suspension. I would urge people to keep sending their views to inform the independent review process”
The following actions will now be undertaken:
- Temporary suspension of the experimental access restrictions at Turnham Green Terrace to alleviate pressure on the road network
- Enforcement of the access restrictions and issuing of PCNs related to Turnham Green Terrace will cease
- The Parking Infrastructure team will remove any access restriction signage as part of this temporary suspension
These new arrangements will take effect immediately. Experimental parking restrictions remain in place and will continue to be enforced.
