November ward forum update

We held our ward forum last week at Benthal School and agreed the following actions to take forward on traffic and road safety:
- to get new signage up around Benthal School to improve safety.  I understand from officers this will be happening soon, but will chase it up.
- to continue pushing for a pedestrian crossing across Evering Road.
- to hold a walkabout with highways officers to look at the different rat runs in the area and develop a plan for dealing with them.
- to support the campaign for a ban on HGVs driving through London at rush hour, as highlighted recently by Chris Boardman  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-24999302

We will update residents via this blog and our newsletter as we make progress.
