The Covid-19 pandemic created new challenges in Harrow, including the need to socially distance.
In May 2020 the Government issued guidance for local authorities to take immediate action to create space for people to socially distance and encourage walking and cycling while public transport was at reduced capacity.
Four temporary low traffic neighbourhood schemes (LTN) were put in place, following government guidance to create space for people to socially distance, making streets safer, quieter and less polluted and encourage walking and cycling while public transport was at reduced capacity. The LTNs were introduced in areas which have suffered historically from vehicular traffic using residential streets as cut-throughs, causing environmental and road safety problems for residents.
The schemes were implemented using experimental traffic regulation orders (ETRO) for trial periods of six-months.
We have engaged with residents, ward councillors and key stakeholders including the emergency services throughout the trial periods. The Council has committed to holding monthly reviews and a consultation as part of the six-month review process.
As we near the six-month review, we would like your views as to how we progress with the schemes.
All residents living within the Headstone South, Vaughan Road and Francis Road LTNs and the surrounding roads will receive consultation documents through the door from Thursday 25 February.
