Olive Road Rat Run Closed

posted in: South Ealing, Uncategorized | 0

Motorists will no longer be able to rat-run from Pope’s Lane through Olive Road, Durham Road and Sunderland Road in South Ealing. The council has installed a connector (modal filter) at the southern end of Olive Road and made the eastern ends of Durham Road and Sunderland Road no access to motor vehicles.

The residents of Temple Road should also get some small relief from this scheme as it prevents motorists on Pope’s Lane cutting through Durham Road and Temple Road to bypass the traffic lights.

It is still possible for motorists to cut through from South Ealing Road to Pope’s Lane, so the area isn’t as quiet as a street park, but it will be a big improvement – especially for parents and pupils walking and scooting to Grange Primary School.
