The closure of Harwood Terrace has been hugely successful in closing a horrendous rat run that subjected the residents of Harwood Terrace to up to: 400 cars per hour; unhealthy levels or pollution; dangerous driving from rat runners; and, aggressive behaviour from the 'rat runners' against the residents both before and after the current trial closure. Before the closure there were also many minor, serious and near fatal accidents on Harwood Terrace itself and the adjoining intersections with Kings Road.
The traffic across the whole area has significantly reduced as a result of the closure and we expect will continue to do so as sat navs and driving apps are updated over time, alongside driver behaviour.
The closure supports LBHF's and London's environmental agendas and supports the reduction of car usage overall in the climate emergency in which we find ourselves.
