GERA has made its response to TfL on its second round Consulation regarding its further proposals.  These include alterations to the traffic flow arrangements at the junctions of Duke Raod and Dukes Avenue with Chiswich High Road

GERA is deeply concerned about the increased traffic levels on the Estate that these new proposals will generate and their effect on access to Estate.

GERA has carried out its own traffic counts and traffic analysis of the proposals and these show that, when implemented, the changes to junctions of Dukes Avenue and Duke Road with Chiswick High Road will cause traffic in Duke Road to increase by 47% and traffic in Bourne Place to increase by 163% at peak times.

These increases will cause chaos and gridlock in these streets and TfL must consider some alternative solution to the issues they are seeking to address.

GERA considers that the simplest solution is to leave these important entry and exit points to the Estate as they are with traffic able to flow in each direction but to control matters by an additional set of traffic lights at the Duke Road/Chiswick High Road/Fisher’s Lane junction.  This will help traffic from the Glebe Estate as well as control the flow of traffic out of Fisher’s which often caused problems in Chiswick High Road at the moment.

Congratulations to the 'Duke Road 50-Somethings', winners at GERA's 2018 Quiz Night.  They answered questions to which even the quizmaster extraordinaire didn't have the answers!  Well done to the runners-up 'Team Jargon', that had only 3 people on its team.

There was lots of laughter, and moans when some of the questions posed were in the MENSA range - not to cast any aspersions on the quizzers present.

The 'Duke Road 50-Somethings' were presented with a bottle of fizz, and they chose the Chiswick RNLI as the charity to which GERA will be donating £50. 'Team Jargon' received a bottle of wine.

Thanks also go to the GERA Committee members who set up the tables with nibbles to sustain the quizzers during the evening, and to the quizzers who participated and  made the evening a great success.

Get on your thinking caps for 2019!
