The remains of a memorial to a man who was killed at this spot last year. This section of Greenford Road has seen a number of similar incidents and a man was found dead on one of the slip roads by Greenford Flyover two days ago, less than a hundred metres away. It seems that no matter what measures are taken, whether it is the introduction of speed cameras, more pedestrian crossings or greater speed restrictions, someone will always take too great a chance with their own safety. At the same time, when you consider the size of the population that lives in close proximity to this busy road, it is probably surprising that the number of casualties isn’t higher.
