Petition submitted to council over Mansfield Road rat run


Residents of Mansfield Road in Wanstead have submitted a petition to Redbridge Council calling for traffic-calming measures on their street.

“An alarming number of vehicles use Mansfield Road as a rat run to avoid the traffic lights at George Green. Cars speed down here from Redbridge Lane West at peak times. We fear for the safety of residents and pedestrians,” said Jenny Burbage, who would like to see a one-way system or speed bumps introduced, citing Gordon Road and Wellington Road as good examples.
