Improvements for Northolt

The government's Levelling Up Fund has allocated Ealing Council £7.2 million to improve the A312  corridor in Northolt. The money is earmarked for landscaping, new signs and pedestrian and cycle crossings of the A312, as well as improvements to the Kensington Road area near Northala Fields. The grant is good news for active travel in the borough. The Department for Transport suspended funding for Ealing after the council's u-turn on low-traffic neighbourhoods, but this money comes from a pot it doesn't completely control. The Levelling Up Fund is managed by the Treasury, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, along with the Department for Transport.
