PLANS to dramatically improve the layout of Southall Broadway will be on display to the public next week.

Residents are invited to come and discuss the new proposals, which include a new 20mph speed limit, wider pavements and new central islands to make crossing the road easier.

The Southall Broadway Boulevard project is part of Southall’s Big Plan, which will involve more than £11m of investment in the town centre to tackle traffic problems, regenerate the area and create more job and training opportunities.

Cabinet member for transport and environment, Cllr Bassam Mahfouz, said: “Southall Broadway is a popular shopping destination but, on average, one pedestrian a month is involved in accidents crossing the road. There is a lot of congestion and pavements are busy.

“We’ve come up with innovative ideas to address these issues and we want people to come to the exhibition to tell us what they think.”

The exhibition will be at Southall Town Hall on Friday and Saturday from 10am-4pm.
