A group of residents along Waxwell Lane are taking a stand against traffic congestion. John Glass, a spokesperson for the group, has lived in Waxwell Lane since 1986 and says the problems just get worse and worse. He told MyPinner&HatchEndNews: “It’s a narrow road originating from the 18th century where horse and carts were commonplace. For many years it’s been prone to traffic congestion caused by cars parked without enough consideration. This often prevents long wheel base vehicles from getting through.” To address this problem, Harrow Borough Council initially installed a 100 metre long section of double yellow lines on the east side of the road two years ago. However, as John claims, there’s still a congestion problem because the new double yellow lines were not extended as far as 44 Waxwell Lane. John added: “When cars park there, a choke point is created and large vehicles can’t get by and instead have to reverse out. “Consequently, 61 residents from 42 properties along the section of Waxwell Lane between Bridge Street and Love Lane have signed a petition to try and persuade the council to extend the double yellow lines to 44 Waxwell Lane.” Hear more about this story and what else is happening in your local community in the November edition of MyPinnerNews, which will be distributed on November 18.
