  • Introduction of 20mph Zone in Benton Road and Cameron Road, as shown on Plan 1;
  • 6No. flat top speed humps (75mm high) in Benton Road and Cameron Road, as shown on Plans 2 & 3;
  • Raised entry treatment in Mundon Gardens J/W Benton Road, as shown on Plan 2;
  • Junction kerb build-outs at Benton Road J/W Charter Avenue and Cameron Road J/W Norfolk Road and Elgin Road, as shown on Plans 2 & 3; 
  • 2No. kerb-to-kerb humps (75mm high) with tactile paving in Benton Road, as shown on Plan 2;
  • 2No. flat top speed humps (75mm high) with centre traffic islands in Benton Road, as shown on Plan 2;
  • Raise the existing Zebra Crossing in Benton Road J/W Aldborough Road South, as shown on Plan 3;
  • Remove the pedestrian island and raise the existing Zebra Crossing in Cameron Road J/W Elgin Road, as shown on Plan 3;
  • 2No. speed cushions in Cameron Road near High Road, Seven Kings, as shown on Plan 3;
  • Extend the existing “School Keep Clear” markings in Benton Road, outside St Aidan’s Catholic Primary Academy, as shown on Plan 2;
  • Remove existing parking bay and introduce ‘Monday to Saturday 8.30am-6.30pm’ “No Waiting” restrictions (single yellow line) outside 39 Benton Road, as shown on Plan 2;
  • Introduce “At Any Time” waiting restrictions (double yellow lines) throughout Benton Road and Cameron Road and its junctions with Mundon Gardens, Charter Avenue, Aldborough Road South, Norfolk Road and Elgin Road, as shown on Plans 2 & 3.

We are also proposing the introduce updated signage and refresh all existing roadmarkings along the length of Benton Road and Cameron Road.

The Metropolitan Police, London Fire Brigade, London Ambulance Services, London Buses and Transport for London are being consulted on the proposals.

The main objective of the proposed scheme is to make this route safer for all road users. By doing so, this will help reduce road accidents and vehicular speeds, assist pedestrians and vulnerable road users to cross the road safely and reduce visibility problems. Changing the road appearance provides a way of altering driver attitude and behaviour thus, improving driver awareness and road safety in the area.
