Ealing cuts bus lane hours to ease congestion

Ealing Council has shortened, suspended or reduced operating hours across the boroughs bus lanes to ease congestion and get traffic moving.

The council has been reviewing all 45 sections of bus lane in the borough and is trialling a series of measures to benefit residents. As part of the improvements the council is introducing electronic bus lane signs on sections of the bus lane along Church Road, Mandeville Road and Petts Hill, between the Target Roundabout and Petts Hill Roundabout. The signs will rotate on a timer system to advise motorists when the lanes can be used.

Other measures the council has taken to improve traffic flow include suspending the northbound bus lane on South Road, Southall, and shortening three stretches of bus lane on Ruislip Road and Uxbridge Road.

The council has also reduced bus lane operating hours.
