Transport and Access Plan For Dukes Meadows
Consultation meeting to be held on Wednesday 13th February
After lobbying for a number of years, a transport and access study and plan has been commissioned by Hounslow Council for Dukes Meadows.
Dukes Meadows was created as a park nearly 90 years ago but, despite vehicle traffic having increased in that time and use of the area intensified, the basic road and junction layout hasn’t altered much. This means that the park and surrounding roads can be difficult and unpleasant to use, particularly for pedestrians and cyclists. At busy times such as Sundays, there is congestion and difficulty in parking. People living around the meadows also have problems in safely crossing some roads and with parking at peak activity times.
The Transport and Access study will seek to identify and analyse the problems and propose solutions, such as new footpaths and junction layouts, which will be costed and implemented over time.
Specialist consultants Peter Brett Associates will carry out the study and as a first step they would like to hear, from users of Dukes Meadows and the people living around it, what they believe the areas transport and access problems are.
A consultation meeting will be held at 7pm on Wednesday 13th February at the Dukes Meadows Community Centre, which is on the right, at the far end of Alexandra Gardens.
Friends of Dukes Meadows Chair Kathleen Healy says, "Please come along if you can, this is your chance to input into this important study at an early stage. A steering committee will be formed to help see the project through and we will be inviting people to join it, we would like to have a spread of interests represented, sports clubs, residents, cyclists etc. so please think about whether you would like to be involved."
