Road safety improvements agreed for busy junction in Muswell Hill
Plans to remodel a road junction to make it safer for people to cross have been agreed following a community campaign.
The CrossSafe N10 campaigners had called for improvements to the junction in Colney Hatch Lane with Alexandra Park Road and Pages Lane.
The group of parents called for improvements around the area, including the installation of a pelican crossing to make it safer for school journeys.
Following the campaign, Haringey Borough Council has announced it has agreed to fund road safety improvements around the junction.
Councillor John Bevan, cabinet member for environment, said: “We’re really pleased to have been able to work with enthusiastic campaigners to address their concerns at this junction, and we’ve already agreed to fund modelling work with Transport for London to see how facilities for pedestrians and cyclists can be improved.
“We’re always keen to work with passionate residents, and we’ll continue to work closely with local people and TfL to find the best way forward as part of our commitment to improving road safety across Haringey.”
The campaign had also been backed by Hornsey and Wood Green MP Lynne Featherstone, who wrote to the council and Transport for London.
