Worried about traffic congestion and pedestrian safety around the section of Seven Sisters Road between Green Lanes and Amhurst Park? It’s time to give your opinion on how to solve the problems.
The public has until March 9 to comment on proposed changes to Seven Sisters Road as it runs through Woodberry Down.
Improvements to resolve long-running problems along the stretch, such as cyclist safety, traffic congestion and the lack of enough pedestrian crossings, have been proposed by the Woodberry Down Development Trust, a partnership between Berkeley Homes and Hackney Council, supported by Transport for London. The move is part of the overall regeneration of Woodberry Down.
Although the trust admits that it is not possible to implement all six potential solutions outlined in its public consultation paper, it does say that some of the ideas could be combined to improve conditions.
Several of the suggestions would require a complete cut or partial reduction in the number of traffic lanes, while others allow for segregated cycling lanes, a rise in the number of pedestrian crossings and the construction of pedestrian island strips of varying width.
A downside of some changes would be increased traffic delays and congestion at certain times.
