Outside Springfield Dentist in Horn Lane vehicles are currently able to park far too close to the centre island, therefore restricting the flow of traffic going towards Acton High Street.

There have been many occasions where busses and large vehicles have had to drive towards the High Street on the WRONG side of the road. This has been going on now for quite some time and I was of the opinion that something would be done to ensure that cars were not blocking the flow of traffic in this area. We have sat onh the bus many times when evasive action had to be taken and a lot of manouvreing before the bus was able to continue towards the High Street. This is not only dangerous but surely slowing the traffic down as well!

We had a similar problem further along Horn a few years ago outside ElGone Driving School, it was a simple task - a few white lines were painted on the road near the kerb to ensure that cars did not park too close to the centre island, and it solved 2 problems. Busses and heavy goods vehicles were then able to pass along Horn Lane without problems, secondly pedestrians had a clearer view when crossing the road at this point.

Now the previous administration were all set to sort out the problem outside Springfield Dentist, now however, it appears that the matter will go to consultation sometime next year.

Speaking to residents in this area we all feel that something should be done quickly to prevent accidents outside Springfield Dentist and it is strange that the matter is not going to be resolved in the near future.

I have written to the council asking that this matter be resolved as soon as possible and I would welcome your comments.
