Newyears Green Lane -Severe traffic congestion

Observed 15:42, 6/09/2019 - Severe traffic congestion in New Years Lane, caused by a mix of saloon car and lorry traffic. I suspect this has resulted from the recent closure by HS2 of the nearby Breakspeare Road South.

As suggested when this happened previously, earlier in the year, why not make News Year Lane one way whilst the Breakspear Road South closure persists. Perhaps making the flow tidal East-West between 00:00 and 11:59 and West-East 12:00-24:00.

And secondily, please ensure that if and when Breakspear Road South is closed again in the future, as its scheduled to be, that co-ordinated action is taken with respect to New Years Lane to avoid the scenes in the photographs above.

Not too much to ask from a Local Authority traffiuc management department, is it ?

  • As at 5/10/2019 - I'm not sure whether this traffic con gestion is still happening as I haven't used this road since first making the report in early September, I suspect the problem will have reduced as the alternative root to Ruislip (Breakspeare Road South) has been re-opened.
