    Albeit the ideology to get people healthier by walking or cycling is good but what these works have done is narrow Greenford road. It is one of the busiest roads connecting south Greenford/A40 to Harrow. Previously when bustopped at the bus stop in front of Iceland vehicles were able to pass the bus and continue flow of traffic. This won’t happen now. With The Grove flats given permission to build three more flat and the Kellogg tower being converted to flats. You wonder about traffic congestion and parking issues. This whole idea of people socialising in piazza type environment must be encouraging to local residents who have to endure the late night shenanigans of the Polish club and the pub. Ill conceived.
