TRAFFIC calming measures taking place in Cuckoo Hill will be completed on Friday, three weeks ahead of plans.
Road works to Cuckoo Hill in Eastcote began on February 4, causing major congestion along the diversion route from Joel Street in Eastcote to Pinner Road in Northwood Hills and continuing into Rickmansworth Road.
The council expected the diversion to be in place for eight weeks while a new road crossing and raised tables were installed.
Instead, with the exception of a few road signs signalling the new 20mph speed limit along Cuckoo Hill, the road will be open to general traffic on Friday, March 8.
HILLINGDON Council removed a speed warning sign from a road prior to a cyclist being fatally hit by a car there.
A shopkeeper has lambasted the authority for not installing the signs permanently in Pinner Road, Northwood, before the incident which killed fellow business owner Zakiyuddin Mamujee (pictured) last month.
A SINGLE heavy goods operator may be responsible for the illegal night-time lorry movements disturbing residents in South Ruislip, Eastcote and Northwood Hills.
Hillingdon Council is set to investigate whether the same vehicle is using a shortcut between the A40 and Watford down Field End Road and Joel Street between 5 and 6am.
Hillingdon Council has placed High Street, Northwood, on a list of roads to be considered for a residential parking scheme.
A petition with 40 signatures had asked that the street be included in the Northwood Parking Management Scheme because of issues with commuters taking up too much space during the daytime, often making it difficult for residents to park.
At an Uxbridge Civic Centre hearing on Wednesday, Councillor Keith Burrows, cabinet member for transportation, agreed to add the road on a list for officers to examine.
POLICE are hunting for the person who threw a concrete block from a Northwood road bridge on to a Tube train passing underneath.
The block, about the size of a brick, dented the roof of a Metropolitan line carriage and forced London Underground to suspended services while the debris was cleared.
A ZEBRA crossing will be installed on a road in Northwood to help elderly residents reach a nearby doctors' surgery.
Hillingdon Council has agreed to install the pedestrian crossing on Green Lane between the junctions with The Glen and Wilford Close following a campaign by residents, backed by Councillor Scott Seaman-Digby (Con).
MORE than a quarter of the total refunds handed back to London Underground users in 2011 were because of delays to the Metropolitan line.
Figures obtained by the International Business Times UK showed the Met line continues to be the Tube route most often subject to refund requests by disgruntled passengers - and that last year was its most costly yet.
