Two at least so far, at Umfreville and Burgoyne roads, spotted this very early morning.
This is good as it will reduce the build up of motorists on the ladder roads trying to get onto green lanes.
I think these are temporary and only at unregulated junctions as part of the Wightman Road closure Traffic Order.
Would a permanent (presumably) new box junction at your traffic-light controlled crossroads be possible under that Order, I wonder - more likely a new Order would be needed is my guess.
Abi. There is a traffic stakeholder meeting next week, I will flag this with the officers then!
I'm not sure I understand your thinking. How can having a box junction make it more difficult to exit a side road than not having one?
" You must not enter the box until your exit road or lane is clear. However, you may enter the box and wait when you want to turn right and are only stopped from doing so by oncoming traffic, or by other vehicles waiting to turn right "
No, I'm not sure what that means either.
You can occupy a box junction legally only if your exit is impeded by opposite-direction traffic (e.g. from the Gardens at most Ladder road junctions).
Pulling out halfway, into a gap in northbound traffic, while you wait for a gap in southbound traffic before completing the right turn, is not legal - although the likelihood of Haringey's camera cars enforcing it is pretty low I'd say. The alternative is to turn left, then do a circuit round the Gardens (puts on tin hat).
But wouldn't there be a risk of you getting stuck on the box when turning left also?
