THREE transport projects in Harrow have been given a boost by a £100,000 grant approved last week.
The money has been given to Harrow Council by Transport for London after the council's traffic and road safety advisory panel recommended three projects.
A scheme to build parking bays to ease coach and minibus access to Kingsley
Special Needs School, in Stafford Road, Harrow, has been given the largest cut of £50,000 while another school, Marlborough First and Middle, will benefit from £20,000 worth of traffic calming measures.
The remainder of the money will fund a feasibility study to improve traffic flow and provide pedestrian crossing facilities along Stanmore Broadway.
It is hoped this will reduce congestion and make crossing the road safer .
Councillor Phillip O'Dell, portfolio holder for environment and community safety on Harrow Council, said: "The council has thought very carefully about how to best use this money.
"We have found three very different but important schemes that represent excellent use of this funding."
