Stanford Avenue/Preston Road Traffic and Noise Calming
The lower half of Stanford Avenue has a nursing home, a refuge centre for mothers and children and several houses divided as apartments as well as the Preston Mansions apartment block with 50 apartments included. Preston Roadnorth of the Viaduct is lined with houses and two apartment blocks near the Viaduct and a new apartment development for 229 homes with space for shopping is currently being constructed opposite Preston Park and close to the pedestrian crossing area noted. This is therefore a densely populated area and residents in the above areas are being subjected to increasing levels of traffic noise often caused by cars and motorcycles with “illegal” exhausts or driving on these streets at excessive and illegal speed levels. Noise pollution is well known to be a cause of stress and damage to health as is recognised by the recent pilot scheme proposal for noise cameras by the Government.
