Traffic calming measures on Hawthorne Avenue

We the undersigned petition Hillingdon Council to Explore traffic calming measures on Hawthorne Avenue and potentially surrounding roads to prevent the extreme speeding of cars day and night. This road is used a cut through for many motorists avoiding the high street traffic lights and as such the many additional users of these residential roads have no regard for local safety. The speeds are awful and the noise extremely loud at times. It is especially prevalent on Hawthorne Avenue which is a wide road with not a lot of on-road parking, meaning cars get up to high speed swerving the odd car.

Every time I leave the house i worry about my young children getting in the car as I watch cars hurtling past and worry about them spinning out of control. I appreciate the traffic lights serve a purpose but the impact on our safety is out of balance. We need appropriate traffic calming measures (bumps, chicanes, zebra crossing at footpath) or even road block to remove the cut through option). This will dramatically improve the lives of the local residents young and old on these roads.

On reaching 100 signatures it will be formally considered by the Council and relevant Cabinet Member. Local ward Councillors will also be made aware of the petition. The Council's Democratic Services Team will keep the lead petitioner updated on progress.

This ePetition ran from 17/06/2021 to 17/09/2021 and has now finished.
