This may not be news to you but not only are Ladder roads affected and Turnpike Lane but the whole of Hornsey Park road is blocked from the junction to Mayes road and beyond. So i turned around and went through Ally Pally to get to Hornsey and the whole of High Street and Priory Road to bottom of Muswell Hill is at a standstill. God knows what rush hour will be like each day and once kids back at school.
That's my rant for the day over.

Agreed - got no problem with that at all Osbawn. I'm not the telling her she can't choose to send her kids where she likes, just that when circumstances change it might be time for a rethink. My point is mainly to do with journeys, children and parents and the stresses involved. If you have to take hours doing it, *sweating it out* as she says- I suggest something's got to give- the location, the mode of transport whatever. Sure the nursery could be better- but I think what she actually said was there were no places when she needed them (which is entirely understandable and I can 100% relate to that) - and then also the bit i don't get is how that journey to Muswell hill is 'somewhere that would also enable our onward commute' to central london. It's just a conversation, not an accusation..
You don't have to justify your choices to anyone Nicole! I wish everyone would stick to the issue at hand rather than picking on you. I don't like how you're being made the poster girl for everything that's wrong with the traffic in this area!
Leave her alone now people, you've made your point.
Just think - one day we will all laugh about this
And then we will be into the turmoil caused by closure of the GOBLIN line and thousands of people trying to push onto overcrowded public transport to get to work, school, nurseries etc!
I know it's all for the greater good in the long run (very long run) but by the time all the works are done in a few years time, everything will be just as crowded as ever due to population increase. Aaggh! I pity you younger generations, such on overcrowded world you are inheriting.

Thanks to Hugh for keeping it all together.
