Lloyd Sampson started this petition to London Borough of Redbridge (Red)

Hermon Hill is a residential street; and is currently an accident waiting to happen. It is being used by a high volume of speeding drivers and for overflow parking in Wanstead. It is only a matter of time until the combination of speed racers and on pavement parking kill one or more people. The situation has to change, and accountability rests with the council, who have been informed and asked by residents to make the required changes but done nothing. 

This road is a home too many families, young and old alike as well as their furry companions. There are also at least two retirement homes and two nurseries on the road. A road which also serves as a main pedestrian thoroughfare to Wanstead high street. The current situation is dangerous, creates a lot of mental anxiety, is environmentally damaging. A toxic combination. 

At the moment there are no traffic calming measures, and much of the pavement is turned over to parking. The priority is obviously fast and high volume traffic, not the protection of life, or the reduction of risk.  Not only does the current situation make many pedestrians feel unsafe, it creates hazards to those who are disabled, those with visual impairments and those with young children. The road acts as a magnet for speeding drivers, and the air pollution of the traffic volume affects every house, person and animal along this key stretch of residential housing.

Our council have not acted on individual complaints and requests for speed controls and safer pavements so I am hoping with this we can show the collective will of residents and those who use the road to demand action from Redbridge Council. Let us together hold the council to account for the quality of life we are able to live, and for the protection of our rights to a safe walking and cycling environment for us, our children, neighbours and pets. Please join me in signing a petition and asking the Council to do their job.
