Put lights in Acton Park main path

Put lights in Acton Park main path

Put lighting in the main north-south path through Acton Park so that parents, children, commuters and local people can walk through safely in winter.

Why is this important?

This path is now open in the evening due to a new school having been built in the park. The path is heavily used by parents, children and local people going between Acton Central Station and buses on Uxbridge Road. It is very dark in winter. The Churchfield Community Association has asked Ealing Council to install lights (solar if suitable) to come on only in winter and for limited hours, e.g. 6-8.30am and 4-8pm. The Council have asked us to show support for this proposal.

Reasons for signing

  • My children go to Ark Byron and by the time the children come home from after school clubs in winter it is really dark.
  • It is our local park. My family and I we are crossing Acton Park every day. After school during the winter period there‚Äôs dark and scary. Thank you for your help.
  • I use this path every day in the winter months despite total darkness, lighting would be great.
