Doctor's doors open
A medical practice serving over 9,000 patients officially opened on its new site last week.
Formerly based at St Anns Terrace, St John's Wood Medical Practice moved to Brampton House, within St John & St Elizabeth Hospital, earlier this year to provide more modern facilities.
Patients will benefit from district nurses, health visitors and other community services located on the ground floor of Brampton House, with the hospital's out-patient rooms and diagnostic equipment located on the first and second floors.
Gates close on crooks
Burglars snooping on houses in the borough are in for a shock after police and council chiefs splashed out on extra equipment.
People living in Grasmere Avenue, Wembley, are set to have a police assessment of their security and new window and door locks installed if needed.
Access to alleyways around the road will also be hindered by the introduction of gating schemes in the coming months.
The moves are in response to public complaints that criminals are entering the back of houses from alleyways resulting in high burglary rates.
Bridge relief for motorists
Hanger Lane bridges are to be given a revamp.
The two new bridges, which carry the A406 Hanger Lane over London Underground and Network Rail lines, will have new road layouts to improve traffic flows and will be strengthened to protect the rail lines underneath.
The work is scheduled to take 18 months.
Transport for London (TfL) has already begun work to replace Waldegrave Road Bridge and South Bridge in Ealing to make the two one-hundred-year-old crossings meet current safety standards.
