The Highgate Society has considered this Plan and has made submissions to Haringey: the closing date for submissions is 10 January.
Haringey’s plan is to spend money mainly on cycle lanes, on safety round schools and on Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, that is to say on stopping residential roads being used as through routes.
The Society’s submission covers a lot of ground but it particularly emphasises that more should be done
- To consider the congestion that would result from traffic being forced to use a small number of through routes, especially narrow ones like Southwood Lane and Wood Lane;
- To consider the practicality and the cost-benefit of providing cycle lanes on busy roads, thereby slowing other forms of traffic such as buses, when only 3% of journeys in Haringey are by bike; and
- To address air pollution as a serious health risk.
