A BEND in a Neasden road that has caused several accidents is the subject of a campaign run by worried local people.
JugaMehta, chairman of the Neasden Neighbourhood Watch, is pressuring the council to take action at Cairnfield Road on behalf of several fellow householders.
Mr Mehta haseven joined up with Dudden Hill ward Labour councillor Krupesh Hirani in a bid to get double yellow lines painted on both sides of the bend so no one can ever park on it.
MrMehta lives right by the bend, and over the years has suffered 'half a dozen' incidents where cars have crashed into the wall infront of his home.
He also says that school children have been knocked by cars in the past, and fears there will be a more serious incident.
BrentCouncil painted a double yellow line on one side of the road and installed two speed humps eight years ago, but due to the severe lack of visibility and tendency for drivers to speed, Mr Mehta and Councillor Hirani want to see lines painted on both sides.
MrMehta said: "It is very dangerous, despite measures already put in place people simply drive too fast. It's a really sharp bend, pretty much an L shape and people shouldn't be able to park there at all. I really hope the council do something about it soon. I am still particularly worried about the safety of local children who use the road a lot."
Mr Mehta saidthat while things had improved with the introduction of speed humps and a double yellow line, there was still a serious concern about safety.
CllrHirani said: "It is quite a busy road, especially during term time. I am hopeful that the council will get this sorted out, I have had a site meeting with an officer there so I hope they install another double yellow line to prevent any kind of parking there at all."
