Road works at the Library Centre junction
There are very mixed feelings about the TfL funded works at this central area of Willesden. The work on the paving around the library is good and the trees on part of the High Road and in Brondesbury Park are generally appreciated. It appears that the work will correct the flooding problem at the site. Concerns included the removal of the guard rails, the trees and the traffic disruption. The intention to provide pull-ins for deliveries to shops created more problems that they solved as buses could not pass large vehicles parked there. As a result, one of the the central islands and its trees were removed. Because of these problems, the work will not be completed until the end of August. Local traders have collected a petition for the council to explain the problems and this will go to Highways Committee at its next meeting in October.
