A drive to paint new double yellow lines across the borough’s junctions is cranking into gear this week.

Lines will be painted on junctions currently without lines, with priority given to interchanges close to schools.

The work is being carried out on a ward by ward basis and work began in Chadwell Heath earlier this week.

The junctions of Tantony Grove with Rosehatch Avenue, Gibbfield Close with Kingston Close and Billet Road with Newhouse Avenue are among those being worked on.

Advance warning signs will be installed in roads shortly before work begins.

Cabinet member for crime and enforcement Cllr Lynda Rice said: “We are determined to make our streets safer for motorists and pedestrians.

“This means we need to install double yellow lines across junctions where there are none, no matter where in the borough.”
