The Mayor


A constituent has complained about access to the A41. Her estate consists of three roads Mount Grove, Riverdene and Langley Crescent and the only exit from them is onto the A41 turning towards Apex Corner (Northway Circus). Coming from Apex Corner towards Edgware the entrance is via a gap in the dual carriageway on Edgware Way. From the Edgware direction you can turn left into Mount Grove. 

During the morning and evening rush hours and in the event of diversions on the motorways two lanes of traffic tail back past her junction towards Kenilworth Road. This makes it extremely difficult for residents to get out of Mount Grove onto the A41 and then get across to the outside of what becomes four lanes at the roundabout. This is the only way to get on to the Edgware Way if you wish to go towards Edgware/Watford or use Selvage Lane as the gap is 'No Entry' from Mount Grove.

More importantly, however, is the plight of traffic using the gap to enter Mount Grove travelling from Apex towards Edgware. Traffic tails back across the junction making it impossible to cross into Mount Grove. If both the lanes stop there is still a problem with motorcycles or cyclists weaving through traffic. Will you arrange for  a marked area for the junction with 'Keep Clear' markings on the road surface which would be beneficial to access and greatly reduce the risksas are provded at the nearby the Pike Road junction with the A41 ?
