Highways Committee last night had a much fuller agenda than for a long time. Kensal Green residents will be most interested in the proposal to do up the Town Centre. This was passed, with the Committee choosing Option B.
Option B is the one where the area in front of the Methodist Church gets semi-pedestrianised. I gether that the Methodist Church have raised a late concern about access for hearses and wedding cars, but we were assured that these could be sorted out. This Option would also lead to part of Crownhill Road and Tavistock Road becoming one way, and the one way system in general becoming much more restricted. There were a number of concerns raised on behalf of visually impaired people. These can be dealt with in the detailed design. On the whole, I am optimistic that the new scheme will provide a number of improvements to the Town Centre, especially for pedestrians.
