Traffic planned again in Station Road, Hayes - but your views are still sought
HAYES is leaping on London’s regeneration bandwagon as residents are encouraged to have their say in the multi-million pound development of the town centre.
The improvement plans, which will be carried out over the next three years, are part of a scheme with Transport for London.
A questionnaire has been sent to the 4,500 homes closest to the town centre and can also be completed online to encourage maximum feedback.
“Last year we asked people what their top priorities were for Hayes and now we’re in a position to deliver what people told us mattered to them,” said Cllr Douglas Mills, Cabinet Member for Community, Commerce and Regeneration.
The plans include allowing traffic up and down Station Road, and creating cycle paths linking Hayes and Harlington Station with the town centre and continuing up Coldharbour Lane.
Work is due to start in autumn 2014 and is likely to take 18 months to complete.
The plans will be on public display in Botwell Green Leisure Centre from Monday, December 2, to January 13.
Staff will be on hand to explain the plans and answer questions on Tuesday, December 17, 10am-7pm, and Thursday January 9, 2-8pm.
The deadline for all replies to the consultation, written and online, is midnight on Monday, January 13.
The aim is to combine Hayes Town regeneration with other planned improvements to transform the area into a welcoming, vibrant and well-connected place.
