Could your community group help to make Romford Road safer?
Redbridge Council is working the Mayor of London, Transport for London (TfL), the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and others to make local roads safer. They are part of Vision Zero, which aims to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries from London’s roads by 2041.
The first step is to involve local communities to address problems in particular locations. In these high risk locations, identified from collision data, severity of casualties and reports to police, targeted police enforcement activity and community engagement will address the situation.
In Redbridge, Romford Road has been identified as a priority location for this pilot. Community groups are invited to an Environmental Visual Audits (EVA) to identify the causes of the road danger risks. This audit covers observations on the road environment as well as behavioural observations. Suggestions for improvements to the physical infrastructure from EVAs will be raised for maintenance or improvement where possible.
Following this, enforcement strategies that target the identified behaviours from the EVA will be created and MPS officers deployed for a period of 4-8 weeks that will aim to educate the public on the dangers and discourage and illegal behaviours through enforcement.#
