Broadmead Road – Road Safety Improvement

Closes 17 Feb 2023

Opened 27 Jan 2023

Overview

The Council is proposing to introduce road safety improvements on Broadmead Road and The Terrace as shown on the plan below.

We are proposing to provide traffic calming in the form of raised speed tables at pedestrian crossing points on Broadmead Road and The Terrace outside Elderberries Day Care Centre and near the junction with Vernon Avenue.  At the junction with Broomhill Road, it is proposed to prohibit the right turn movement and install a new pedestrian refuge island. East of the junction with Charteris Road, we are proposing to extend the double yellow line waiting restrictions on the north side of Broadmead Road.

The Metropolitan Police, London Fire Brigade, London Ambulance Services and Transport for London have been consulted on the proposals.

Why make changes?

The main objective of the proposed scheme is to make this area safer for all road users. The road safety measures will help reduce vehicular speeds, improve driver awareness, improve crossing conditions for pedestrians and improve road safety in the area.

Lowering traffic speeds also makes our streets less polluted, and better and safer places to walk and cycle.

Woodford Green Preparatory school and Elderberries Day Care are located near Broadmead Road/The Terrace and there are large numbers of school children and elderly pedestrians in the area.

The extension to double yellow line waiting restrictions on the north side of Broadmead Road, east of the junction with Charteris Road is being proposed to help improve traffic flow at this location where there have been issues with parked vehicles and merging traffic (additional roadmarkings and traffic signs will also be installed).

There have been thirteen personal injury collisions including four involving serious injury in the last three year for which data is available on Broadmead Road and The Terrace. Traffic surveys indicate 85%ile traffic speeds (the speed at which 85% of vehicles are travelling at or below) of 33 mph and over on this road.
