Your Crouch End Lib Dem team – Tammy Palmer, Luke Cawley-Harrison and Dawn Barnes (above) – are running a safer streets campaign to tackle the issue of speeding on Shepherd's Hill and Wolseley Road, which we are asking you to add your name to below.
Following information requests we have sent to Haringey Council, we can confirm that traffic monitoring has shown cars travelling over 60mph on both Wolseley Road and Shepherd’s Hill, and the average speed on both roads exceeding the limit by over 25%. We feel that such speeds are entirely unacceptable.
We have also been talking to residents about the lack of a pedestrian crossing towards the bottom of Wolseley Rd, at the junction with Park Rd. The lack of safe means to cross the road here is presenting a real danger to pedestrians, which only appears to have worsened since the installation of a raised junction.
At present, there is no safe way to cross Wolseley Road without walking up to the zebra crossing by the junction with Coolhurst Road.
We have been conducting a petition on your doorsteps to ensure Haringey Council take action on these issues. We have already reached many of you, but we want to ensure those we have yet to catch at home have the opportunity to sign, so if you would like to support our campaign and make sure Haringey Council do something about these issues, then please add your name below.
We, the undersigned, call for Haringey Council to investigate, and consult on, traffic calming measures on Shepherd's Hill and Wolseley Road, and a new pedestrian crossing on Wolseley Road between Clifton Road and Park Road.
