The Speed Warning Sign in Uxbridge Road near Paines Lane, as you travel towards Pinner Green, is no longer functioning. A Speed Warning Sign is one of those signs that flashes up if a vehicle is exceeding the speed limit – apparently useful for a short period of time after introduction. A ticket has been logged with TFL.
Paines Lane is one of the more difficult, and potentially dangerous, junctions in Harrow. Traffic on Uxbridge Road is potentially quite fast – despite the Speed Warning Signs. Additional factors include the bends on both sides of Paines Lane together with right-turning traffic out of Paines Lane. Nasty! My opinion is that a roundabout should be considered.
