Make Ealing's Uxbridge Road Safe for All
Petition has closed and a response from the council has been published.

 

Following the recent tragic death of a woman on the Uxbr­idge Road, we feel Transport for London and Ealing Council have not achieved enough in their goals for a safer borough. There are many juncti­ons and crossings that are hazardous for pe­destrians, wheelchair users and cyclis­ts and difficult to negotiate for driver­s. This petition calls for a review of road safety along the le­ngth of the Uxbridge Road in Ealing. We wou­ld like this to be followed with a renew­ed and specific comm­itment from Ealing Council to provide protected space for vulnerable road users, and in­vest in safety impro­vements along the road to make it safe for all.

This petition has been reviewed and the following response has been offered:
Dear Sir or Madam, I wrote to you on 22nd December 2017 in relation to the ePetition: “Make Ealing’s Uxbridge Road safe for all”. It has now been brought to my attention by the leader of the Conservative group that there was an error in the first part of that email, as it contained the speech of the cabinet portfolio holder, including party political assertions, rather than the council’s formal response to the petition. I apologise for that error. The council’s correct response is set out below: The council has now agreed its programme of highway works for 18/19. The programme includes a review of cycling or pedestrian accident black spots along the Uxbridge Road. Council officers have made contact with local stakeholders ECC and Make Uxbridge Road Safe campaign requesting nominees to work with us to jointly agree the scope and brief of the reviews. Notwithstanding the outcome of the reviews, we have already repainted road markings on Uxbridge Road on the approach to the Lido junction, and have removed several meters of guard-rail. In addition, carriageway resurfacing on Uxbridge Road near Lido junction has been programmed, and is scheduled to be completed by end of April (dates TBC). With regard to Uxbridge Road through West Ealing, feasibility studies will commence in April as part of the West Ealing Liveable Neighbourhood, and will include a review of pedestrian and cycling safety. At its December council meeting, the Council also debated a motion on the same topic. The original motion was proposed by a member of the Conservative Group, and with a small amendment that motion was then agreed unanimously. The agreed motion read: This Council notes that following the tragic death of Claudia Manera on the Uxbridge Road (October 2017), a local group, Make Uxbridge Road Safe, formed with the stated objective to campaign for roads across London – including and especially the Uxbridge Road, to offer protected space for cycling in line with the Mayor’s promise to triple and especially the this protected space. This comes after the death of 2 cyclists and 2 pedestrians on this stretch of road and 46 more suffering serious injuries in the past 5 years. In support of this stated objective and to help prevent future tragedies, this Council will: 1) Carry out a review of pedestrian accident “black spots” along the Uxbridge Road. Following the review, carry out work to make the pedestrian “black spots” safer, giving priority to completing the most dangerous sections first. The review and safety measures should give special consideration to wheelchair users, parents with young children, older residents and other vulnerable groups, including motorcyclists. 2) Carry out a Cycle Level of Service (CLoS) audit of the Uxbridge Road, which has already been identified by TfL in its own analysis, as one of the top 25 in London for development. The review will be done in accordance with TfL’s London Cycling Design Standards (LCDS) 2014, Chapter 2, to identify the sections that fail to meet LCDS standards. Following the review, carry out improvements where appropriate, so that the Uxbridge Road conforms to LCDS where possible, giving priority to completing the most dangerous sections first. 3) The Review to include local and independent stakeholders who will work with Ealing Council and Ealing Cycling Commission to deliver improved road safety for all users. The Review be completed by July 2019. This Council welcomes the good work that has been done by Ealing Council in recent years to encourage greater numbers of residents to take up cycling including initiatives like cycle training, hangars, the distribution of anti-crime devices and improving cycle infrastructure, making cycling easier in Ealing. More recently, the Cycle Plan – which sets out the vision for cycling and contains an action plan for the cycling programme over the next 3-5 years, is out for consultation. A liaison meeting has been held with the main cycling groups as part of this. Kind regards ePetitions Admin Team Ealing Council Keith Fraser Fraserk@ealing.gov.uk
