Please outline the preventative measures that were explored in halting graffiti on the A406 between the Waterworks and Charlie Brown's Roundabouts and the reasons they were considered impracticable?

Transport for London (TfL) contractors clean this location of graffiti every 28 days. Despite this regular removal, graffiti replacement is almost immediate. TfL continues to pursue a long term and permanent solution. It is currently engaging with the London Borough of Redbridge to explore options such as CCTV enforcement, mesh coverings and slats.

Planting measures were previously considered along this route but, on investigation, the reduction of footway width would have meant TfL was not able to meet its accessibility requirements.
