Motorcycle ban on Rainsford Road

This is proposed as an experimental order at this stage, with a signed alternative route.

There are on-going and often daily problems with motorcyclists using this road as a race track and for stunt riding, particularly when there are events at the nearby Ace Cafe. Numerous incidents and accidents have been reported by the Metropolitan Police and the local community.

It is only be a matter of time before someone is seriously injured or killed. It is unfortunate that there will be an impact on law abiding motorcyclists but we have to consider the safety of other road users and people that live and work in the area.
