Action on Hayes Street Congestion

After a number of requests from your councillors and the Hayes Village Association, the Council is set to tackle the long running issue of traffic congestion on Hayes Street.

A scheme that will widen the road, as well as controlling parking, especially at the key bottleneck points, should ensure that traffic including buses will be able to pass more freely through the street without encouraging speeding.

The road will be widened by up to a metre from a point near the war memorial down towards the rectory on the church side, while parking will be restricted on the same side from near George Lane, again down to the rectory. The plans, which the Council will be consulting residents on shortly, will be combined with a scheduled resurfacing in the early Spring.
