Traffic signals: Hanger Lane, Uxbridge Road; Ealing, Midd
|Location||National Archives (see all files stored here)|

I was hoping this might contain information about the development of Hanger Lane interchange in West London. I will save your time: it does not.
The file title is ambiguous, but it actually concerns traffic signals at the junction of the A406 and the A4020 Uxbridge Road. At that point the A406 North Circular is called Gunnersbury Avenue, so the presence of "Hanger Lane" in the file title is entirely erroneous.
There is a lot of correspondence here between the Department of the Environment and LB Ealing who had been contracted in 1971 to replace a 1930s signal installation at that junction. There's also chat from the 60s about appropriate signal timings at this location, accident statistics there from the 1950s and an actual blueprint dated 1932 of the original signal installation.
I mean, if you actually care about the junction of Gunnersbury Avenue and Uxbridge Road, go for it, it's a riot. Otherwise I vote it a miss.
