Westway Cross retail park, Greenford Road

Late Sunday afternoon at the local retail park. This development has proved to be a success with customers who arrive by public transport as well as by car. There was some opposition to it at first but so far the potential traffic congestion that was a concern at the planning stage has been avoided, even at Christmas. It will be very close to the proposed high speed rail link known as HS2 and it is not known what impact construction work will have on the immediate area. There are fears that it may cause a drop in footfall at what has become an essential source of jobs for the local community.
