A petition has been launched calling for speeding controls and safer pavements on Hermon Hill.
“Hermon Hill is a residential street and is currently an accident waiting to happen. It is being used by a high volume of speeding drivers and for overflow parking in Wanstead… The road also serves as a main pedestrian thoroughfare to the High Street. The situation is dangerous, creates a lot of mental anxiety, and is environmentally damaging,” said Lloyd Sampson, who started the petition last month.
In response, Councillor Jo Blackman said: “Hermon Hill is quite high on the list for road safety improvements. I share the frustration that it’s not happening more quickly, but the council has a large number of roads requiring attention and limited resources. I will continue to make the case for this to be prioritised.”
