DURING the summer a lot of work has been done in Field End Road, Eastcote, to improve the safety of road users.
However, in the past three weeks we have seen two serious, multi-vehicle accidents in the 100 yards stretch of road outside the Cavendish Sports Ground and function rooms.
This section of the road is narrowed by a 'protected' parking bay, which is poorly signed. The bay is protected by a kerb which projects into the road and has a dark brown, unlit post on it.
Elsewhere, such protected bays are indicated by an illuminated, or highly luminous sign, with the appropriate arrow indicating the narrowing of the road.
This stretch of road is not evenly lit, as trees in the area shade the streetlights from the roadway and the pavements.
The road markings in the area seem to be inconsistent, with some crosshatched areas being coated in red, and others not so.
We are also still waiting for the proposed zebra crossing to be installed between Ferncroft Avenue and Woodlands Avenue, the installation of which will help to slow vehicle speeds.
I understand that the TfL inspectors were not entirely happy with the road safety features which were made during the summer. When will the situation be reviewed, and improved?
