“I look after my elderly mother which involves driving to her home frequently to look after her needs. These changes have dramatically increased my journey times and have already had a negative impact on both of our lives."
Ricky (owner) Jay's Superstore
"The installation of these barriers is destroying my business. Access to my shop is being denied to many of my regular customers. It will be hard for me and my family to survive. This is unfair and I am very angry."
"There have already been two incidents in my street when Emergency Ambulance services have been blocked trying to reach their destination due to the LTN barriers. Lives are being put at risk. I have no words to express my fury at this whole debacle!"
"The LTN roadblocks have resulted in longer drive times, traffic jams like never before and worse exhaust emissions. It is segregating communities and Ealing Council clearly couldn't give two hoots."
President, West Ealing Bowls Club
"The barriers installed in our area will have a big impact on our Club. Access for a number of elderly members who have to use their cars will be restricted and it will also cause problems for visiting Clubs arriving from the North and East of the area. Our ability to host Representative events, e.g. Middlesex tournaments, will be compromised due to vehicle access. We are proud to be 97 years old and this presents one of the greatest challenges to our future."
"The barriers in LTN21 are making life so much more difficult for myself, my friends and local businesses I talk to. Every journey now takes much longer than before. I can't believe this has been done with no consultation. It's just not fair."
