Petition for speed survey on West Heath Drive, NW11

Carry out a speed survey on West Heath Drive NW11

Cars are regularly observed driving at speeds in excess of 30mph on West Heath Drive, and at times significantly above this. As well as being a narrow residential road, it is a common thoroughfare between Golders Green centre and Golders Hill Park, and we are concerned that these speeds pose a risk to both residents and the many pedestrians passing through, especially children.

There is also a private nursery for toddlers in the newly refurbished Golders Green Hall and garden on West Heath Drive which itself will generate extra traffic to the road, and increase the number of pedestrians vulnerable to unsafe driving.

West Heath Drive appears to be increasingly used by drivers as a shortcut to avoid the Golders Green central roundabout and lights at all times of day especially rush hours, resulting in a high proportion of through traffic driving in a manner more suited to main roads.

We the undersigned, living on West Heath Drive, request a speed survey on our road.
