A lot of pothole discussions this week, but great news is that the Kilburn High Road is one of the two principal roads submitted by Brent to TFL for resurfacing. Let’s all cross our fingers…( by the way Brent maintain Kilburn High Road from Willesden Lane to Kilburn station, while Camden maintain Kilburn High Road from Willesden Lane to the bottom of the High road, in case you ever wondered. So now you know who to contact to report an issue!).
