This concerns the junction outside the new B&M Homestores / Aldi, with the work ongoing. This Facebook post from Brian Dazley sums up the issue and Brian’s concerns…
We have approached our local councillors… here was South Ruislip Cllr Judy Kelly’s follow up to council traffic officers.
“I received the attached email today complaining about the confusing lay out of the junction of West Mead with Victoria Road.and I would totally agree with the comments
When these plans were first drawn up and shown to local councillors Cllr. Kaufman and I booked an appointment with the traffic officers to object to the ‘no right turn’ out of West Mead. We pointed out that as there is already a ‘no right’ turn coming from Long Drive it would turn many of the side roads into ‘rat runs’ as they would become the only means of turning right into Victoria Road.
At this meeting it was agreed that although the traffic lights were to be moved it would still be possible to make a right turn out of West Mead yet it is very unclear how to do this as there are obstacles straight in front so one has to drive partially along the wrong side of the road before getting onto the correct carriageway. it is indeed a very dangerous situation. Can this be rectified as a matter of urgency please.”
We will feedback as we hear more, however if you have concerns it is well worth also phoning the council 01895 250111 and leaving feedback for them on this issue directly. The more people that contact the more likely they are to reply urgently.
