Council seeks residents’ views on new road safety works
Residents are being invited to share their views on improvement works proposed by the council, on Bedford Road near the junction of Alexandra Park Road.
The works would see enhanced pedestrian crossing facilities and form part of the council’s Walking Improvement Programme, which aims to introduce schemes to help improve and promote walking and accessibility for pedestrian in the borough.
The works also tie into the council’s wider plans to support active travel for residents in Haringey.
Key elements of the proposal include:
• A new zebra crossing on Bedford Road, replacing the existing informal crossing
• A new kerb build-out, to improve visibility at the crossing
• A new refuge island, to help calm traffic and improve pedestrian safety
The council is seeking residents’ views through a 5-week consultation, which runs until Tuesday 15 September. The full details of the consultation and the proposed work will be uploaded on the consultations page from the 12 August.
Residents can email their views to: email@example.com.
Cllr Chandwani, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said:
“We know that residents have, for some time, expressed a desire for better crossing facilities on Bedford Road, to improve safety. I want to thank residents who took time to contact me, meet with me and show me around their neighbourhood to highlight this problem.
“We have listened to their concerns and I am now really excited to share these proposals with them. We are committed to promoting the safety of our residents and are keen to hear their views.”
