An iconic landmark in Harlesden will be temporarily removed next month as part of a multi-million regeneration project of the town centre.
The Jubilee Clock in the High Street will be removed from its present location on a traffic island on June 25.
The move is taking place in order to make way for a new scheme which aims to improve traffic flow in the area.
The clock, which dates back to 1887, will be restored to its original condition and placed back in the town centre in around six months time.
The Rucklidge Avenue Residents’ Association submitted a petition against the clock being moved to Brent Council but the plans were approved last April.

Once the new scheme is put into place cars will be prohibited on High Street between the Jubilee Clock and Tavistock Road, with delivery lorries serving shops in the area being permitted before 10am and after 4pm.
Footways will also be widened to provide more space for pedestrians and extra trees will be planted throughout the area.
