This sub-committee deals with LBH and the Metropolitan police on all aspects of road safety, speeding, traffic management, traffic lights and road works.

Currently we are putting pressure on LBH to ensure that it publishes timely and accurate communications about road works.

We successfully campaigned to get the speed limit reduced on Rickmansworth Road from 40mph to 30mph.

We have also campaigned to get the Met to enforce speed limits and to get them and LBH to enforce parking regulations.

We have campaigned against the traffic lights at the junction of Green Lane, Station Approach and Eastbury Road both before they were installed at the end of 2009 and since that time, as we do not think they have done anything to improve road safety but have led to much frustration among pedestrians and motorists alike.

We are aware of the importance of regularly maintained highways, and we are glad that LBH has agreed to resurface some of the roads with the worst potholes.  There is still much to be done, however.

You can report problems to LBH using the small yellow cards found in Northwood library or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Due to major improvement works, Joel Street will be closed southbound from Northwood Hills Circus to Norwich Road from Wednesday 23rd July until early September.

Buses 282 and H13 will be diverted.

This is what the council stated:

A message from London Borough of Hillingdon:

High Street, Northwood - Water Mains Replacement

I would like to bring it to your attention regarding the above water mains replacement scheme.

In October 2012 Cllr Carol Melvin and Cllr Scott Seaman-Digby held a public meeting to get the views of residents and businesses on how Old Northwood around the High Street could be improved. A range of topics covering traffic, parking, safety, appearance of shop fronts and condition of pavements were highlighted by the participants and these were sent to the Council Officers for their response.

The Ward councillors have now received a reply to the various issues that were raised and these are summarised in a document.  Click here to download the document.
