You keep going on about this Hugh, a personal crusade if you like but this was put out to the residents all those years ago, each house had a questionnaire which they could fill in and send in. The council acted on residents wishes and we saw an improvement in part, detrimental in others. Taking into consideration what others have said on this matter on and off line, the consensus is it has improved on the whole on the Ladder, your beef with the flow of traffic on some roads is legitimate but your criticism of the improvements eight years ago are not representable.
I have yet to hear anyone come up with a valid solution only criticism, that’s why I started this thread to hear some viable alternatives rather than some pie in the sky wishes, maybe some one out there can come up with a scheme which will distribute the traffic fairly and calm the traffic down.
Putting speed humps on Wightman will help slow down the traffic on that road, that’s the intension I was unaware it should have an effect elsewhere. As I have stated I see this as work in progress, CPZ, one way, 20mph zone, now lets work on traffic flow, traffic calming measures and illegal usage of the roads. In any of these the reopening of Hermitage is a must, whether the Gardens ‘I’m all right Jack’ system can be overturned, I very much doubt it.
I put this to you, what is the solution, not just for your road but also for the whole of Harringay? Do you think any of my suggestions would help?
Just to add to that ramble, I would imagine any effective system aint going to be cheap and money is in short supply at the moment.
