Just looked out my window and the traffic is queueing ALL the way down Longfellow Road to Central Road. Why people can't turn off down Browning Avenue and use one of the other exits to Central Road is beyond me!

All the way down Browning Avenue there are diversion signs pointing into Longfellow Road.

No idea why.

How pleasant it was to stroll down Green Lane this morning without the engine noise and choke of exhaust fumes. It's certainly solved its traffic problem, any chance Green lane could be blocked off permanently?, I'd vote for it.

Parkerilla - Yes pleasant, but all other surrounding roads were gridlocked. On the plus side, Hamptons residents will have to walk (gosh) instead of getting the S3 bus for all of 30 seconds tonight.

Whilst waiting on the station platform this morning, it was fun to see the cars driving down Green Lane towards Central Road then having to turn back. The high street was extremely quiet this afternoon as well. Lets see what rush hour brings.

Central Road was indeed quiet this Monday lunchtime - better than usual. "Armageddon along just fine" I thought.

I also saw quite a few people not seeing the big red sign saying "Road closed" and having to turn round. Those cars that do go down Green Lane do seem to be speeding considerably though.

I live in Beverley Gardens and really looking forward to two or three months of peace from the traffic noise maybe we'll actually get to sleep better!!!

Hi Anonymous

How long have you lived in W.Park?
Having lived in busier parts of London any parts of W.Park is bliss.

Nichu - The speed bumps (3 humps) in Green Lane are also to be increased to full road width ramps so that will slow down the traffic. Not sure how it can be slowed down more on a busy rush hour morning though!
