A new zebra crossing is set to be installed in a busy road in Harrow, making it safer for pedestrians to cross.

A notice from Harrow Council in this week’s edition of the Harrow Times states a proposal has been approved for the new crossing in Streatfield Road.

It will be adjacent the party wall of Nos. 242 and 244 and the “controlled area”, in which waiting and loading is prohibited, will apply on both sides of the crossing after it is installed.

Meanwhile, part of Masons Avenue is set to be temporarily closed to traffic from Monday to allow utility works to take place.

The road will be shut between a point opposite the party wall of Nos. 76 and 78 and a point opposite the part wall of Nos. 56 and 58.

The works are anticipated to be completed by Wednesday, although the order will remain in effect until July 26.

During the closure, the diversion will be via Byron Road, Plamerston Road and High Street, Wealdstone, and vice-versa.

Separate utility works mean temporary waiting and loading restrictions are due to be introduced in Cecil Road from June 7.

This work is expected to be completed by the following day and the restrictions will apply on the north-east side of Cecil Road, when signs are in place, between a point opposite the south-eastern boundary wall of No. 82 and a point opposite the north-western boundary wall of No. 96.
