Temporary experimental traffic scheme in Minster Way, Hornchurch

On Monday 21 June 2021, a temporary experimental traffic scheme in Minster Way, Hornchurch went live. This means that the following restrictions apply –

  • You are no longer allowed to turn left from Wingletye Lane into Minster Way when you are traveling from the direction of the A127.
  • You are no longer allowed to make a right turn out of Minster Way into Wingletye Lane.
  • You are no longer allowed to drive across Wingletye Lane from Minster Way into Maywin Drive.

Enforcement cameras are in place and motorist who fail to observe these new restrictions will be issued with a penalty charge notice.

Details of the published Traffic Order is available via Minster Way Traffic Order.

The experimental scheme lasts for 18 months from the 21 June 2021. After that time the council will either need to remove the restrictions or make them permanent. People can send in their comments for the first six months to Interim Assistant Director Public Realm, Town Hall, Main Road, Romford RM1 3BB.

  1. This is now causing traffic issues outside my house on wingletye lane and now when the bus stops there is no way anything can move in either direction. I understand why you wanted to do something but surely speed bumps down the road would have sufficed.

  2. Dear Sarah,

    Thank you for your message.

    This is a Havering Council scheme and not one that has anything to do the Upminster and Cranham Residents’ Association or its councillors (it is in a ward outside of the areas we cover). Please send any comments to the council via the address given above.

    I am sure that the Hornchurch Residents’ Association councillors for St. Andrews Ward (who cover Minster Way) would also be interested in your views. You can contact them via their website – https://hxra.org/meet-the-team/ .

    Kind regards

    Cllr John Tyler

  3. Hello

    Can I please check, if it definitely just a PCN and not a fine plus points please ?
    Didn’t see the sign until today (09 July), typical morning school run and completely missed this. Now worried it may come with points. So any clarifications on this would be much appreciated please.

    Thank you.

    • Dear Sue,

      I can confirm that if you receive a penalty notice it will simply be a fine. Contravening a direction sign is not one of the offences that means points on your licence.

      Kind regards

      Cllr John Tyler
