Southall Broadway improvements marked
Wed 8 July 2015, 12:32 pm
Ealing Council held an event in June to celebrate a £6 million project to improve Southall Broadway.
The scheme included overhauling the layout of the town centre’s main thoroughfare. New ‘boulevard zones’ down the centre of the road now allow pedestrians to cross the broadway in two halves, making it easier, safer and more convenient to cross the road; wider footways have been developed to reduce crowding; signalised crossings have been removed and a 20mph zone for vehicles has been introduced. The road has also been resurfaced, new street lights have gone in, along with CCTV cameras, bins and benches.
Leader of Ealing Council, Councillor Julian Bell, said: “It’s been fantastic to already see such positive results from the improvements to Southall Broadway. The event was a great way to acknowledge the work that’s been done and to thank all those involved, including local businesses and residents for their patience.”
