Comment - Streets for Living / Road Safety
Curbing the Car by David Flint.
We established last year that, following our petition, the council
traffic engineers have measured traffic speeds on seven roads in the
Hoppers Road area. The council will propose new calming
measures in April and there will be a formal consultation covering
the whole area referred to in the petition.
Lead petitioner Jean Robertson-Molloy and others in Hoppers Road.
On Thursday 28th February we are holding a public meeting at
Friends Meeting House, Winchmore Hill, to help local residents
prepare for the consultation. The speakers will be:
Audrey and Caroline are both members of the Party. I will be
chairing and I'll make sure that there's a LOT of time for discussion.
- Audrey Kirby, Southgate District Civic Trust
- Liam Mulrooney, Chief Traffic Engineer, Enfield Council
- Caroline Russell, Chair, Islington Living Streets.
We're currently distributing 2,000 leaflets, putting up posters and
informing our local contacts so we expect a good turnout. All
members of EGP will be welcome and can usefully represent the
party in talking to local residents so please come.
