Paving in Kensal Green
Brent Council recently decided to introduce tarmac surfaces where paving has previously been used. An example of this practice from Furness Road is shown above. I have long complained about this road, where the pavements have been bad for years. I think that rather than take what the late Dan Filson called the "liquorice allsorts" approach to surfaces, it would be better simply to do the whole stretch the same way. I would prefer the kind of surfacing you see at Hazel Road in front of Harriet Tubman House, although that is more expensive.
