An accident hotspot could be about too become much safer.

Brent Council are asking for the public’s thoughts on whether the area around All Souls Avenue and Chamberlayne Road in Kensal Rise should be a 20mph zone.

Between 2013 and 2015, Brent Council identified 32 accidents in the area. Five of these incidents resulted in serious injury, six involved a pedestrian, and 14 involved cyclists and motorcylists.

The council introduce road safety measures across the borough dependant on the number of personal injury accidents recorded.

This accident prone site has now been earmarked as the council seek to implement traffic calming measures. A 20mph zone is already in place further down Chamberlayne Road.
