Brent Council is consulting on proposed improvements to the Kensal Corridor.
Brent Council working in partnership with Transport for London, have developed proposals to improve the Kensal Corridor, comprising Chamberlayne Road (from Clifford Gardens to Buller Road), Kilburn Lane (from the Buller Road to the Harrow Road junction) and Station Terrace.
Design studies sponsored by TfL and undertaken by Brent Council have led to funding being secured from TfL to develop a scheme to improve bus reliability, traffic flow and the public realm. The scheme is also expected to deliver improvements to road safety and conditions for pedestrians and cyclists.
Following this public consultation, further scheme implementation funding will be sought, provided the scheme progresses successfully through TfL’s continuing approvals process. Brent say the scheme is in full accordance with the Mayor’s Vision for London, including the Healthy Streets approach.
In supporting the proposals, Councillor Eleanor Southwood, Queens Park Ward and Lead Member for Environment says: “Over the past few years, residents have been raising concerns about traffic congestion, safety and increasingly, air quality in the area. We’re really pleased to be supporting this public consultation and would love to hear the views of as many local people as possible. Residents and businesses have worked together with the council and TFL to get us to this point and we’re excited about seeing the scheme evolve and deliver much needed improvements along the corridor.”
