Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Oxford Street to be pedestrianised by 2020 ... so Wightman Rd ...

 ... can surely be closed to through traffic in the future, as it currently is during the bridge works. If the planners can deal with the re-routing of all those buses and taxi journeys away from Oxford Street for the pedestrianisation plans, it must be possible to do this for Wightman Road as well.

Living Wightman would do well to have a chat with the new Mayor's office.

Yes because Wightman Road is very similar to Oxford Street...

I agree Nick, the taxi drivers will be unhappy.

Oh yes, but can we have a John Lewis, Debenhams, M&S and TopShop too?

And one or two of those spare buses would be handy also.

Maybe an impromptu game of 'find the lady' ?
The point is that luxury shopping is a higher priority than the health and safety of children & residents.
No, the point is Oxford street has more lungs walking up and down it breathing the polluted fumes than any other street in the UK.

The next place to get pedestrianised should rightly be Wood Green high street. Not wightman road.

Agreed - if anything, this suggests that Green Lanes is a better candidate than Wightman for pedestrianisation.

Nobody has suggested pedestrianisation for Wightman. Simply an arrangement like the Gardens to stop 120,000 commuter vehicles a week.
Sorry, the next place to get 120,000 plus commuter vehicles a week stopped should be Wood Green high street.
We should invite Kings College London to assess both...Wightman and Wood Green, then we will be aware of what we are looking at/ breathing...

You are missing the point FPR; Oxford Street = £££

Wightman Road and Green Lanes are a mere drop in the ocean and neither of them attracts tourists from all over the world.

I think you'd be surprised how many tourists do come to this part of Green Lanes. If you look at the Trip Advisor reviews of some of the restaurants many are from people outside of London and outside of the UK.
