Apparently the work is starting this year, but i've not been able to find out anything at all about whats going to be done, other than yes its happening and no that figure isn't a typo. Hopefully they'll get the West Green Rd traffic off the Alfoxton dog leg so less of it uses the Frobisher/Willoughby Rd rat run.
Originally they were going to remove the Alfoxton/Willougby dog leg. Maybe they'll open up the public toilet under there so fewer people at area forums will get the floor to complain about people using Ducketts Common as a toilet.
A Harringay monorail would be good.
The above is a simplified delivery process and will span the next three financial years.
Quite possibly an oxymoron!
Just to be pedantic--Alfoxton AVENUE not Road!
Has anyone heard any more about this? Wondered if it was moving forward?
Its unclear how much that will cost and how much they will have left to do more pedestrian friendly things by the Alfoxton shops or the Frobisher junction. Without all that traffic the little parade of shops on Alfoxton Ave could potentially become quite a nice spot. There is a group of us who are trying to ensure local residents get some input early on as the designs progress, if you or anyone else wants to be part of that email firstname.lastname@example.org.
North Harringay Residents' Association? You ARE living dangerously. (But good luck with it. I'll be interested to see how it develops.)
Cheers for the update - I actually find that solution a bit worrisome......
Traffic already comes down Alfoxton Avenue too fast in a lot of cases - for some reason the fact that it goes into 2 lanes there, seems to make people put their foot down. I've seen a number of cars have very near misses at that corner (and a couple who have missed it entirely and ended up on the grass!). Adding traffic lights for them to 'race' against can only exacerbate the problem as far as I can see.
Will drop an email through as would be keen to be involved.
Ant, can any of that very large pot of money go towards mitigating the hazards at the Frobisher Rd/Willoughby Rd junction - like shaving a few feet off the very corner of Duckett's Common to give mutual visibility and a less sharp turn to vehicles arriving at and turning at that junction? There's room to do it without taking down the plane tree in that corner.
At the moment it's a shocker.
The Frobisher Rd/Willoughby Rd corner does desperately need something done to it, i'd prefer trying for less traffic though than shaving off a bit of Ducketts Common to give cars more space. If we can't get the Frobisher Gate then something like pedestrianizing all the road along the bottom of Duckets Common could be good -
