Southall improvements final phase

Work is about to begin on the final phase of a project to improve the safety and attractiveness of Southall Broadway.

There will also be wider pavements, better streetlights, benches and new bins installed as well as trees planted along The Broadway.

The works are part of an £11 million project to regenerate Southall supported by Ealing Council, the Mayor of London and Transport for London.

Councillor Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council, said: “This is all part of the Southall Big Plan which has already begun to bring exciting changes to the area but also radically transform the shopping district to boost trade and investment in Southall. This stretch of Southall Broadway is notoriously one of the worst pedestrian collision hotspots in the borough and for the past eight months we’ve been working hard to make it safer.

“This final phase of work will not only improve road safety by changing driver behaviour, but also make it easier for people to cross safely, when they like, and where they like, by doing it in two halves instead of waiting for a signal crossing.
