Travel in London is about to get very difficult. With warnings to avoid public transport, which is limited to 10% capacity anyway, the number of vehicles on the road could soon be overwhelming. Can walking and cycling can take some of the strain?
With some urgency – and money from the Mayor and HMG – local authorities are drawing up plans now to select streets for emergency pavement widening and cycle lane creation.
We've identified these pedestrian pinch points in the town centre –
- Crouch Hill – narrowing to 1.25m outside no.147
- The Broadway – narrowing to 2.05m outside no.1 (this is a high footfall area)
- Tottenham Lane/Broadway Parade – narrowing to 2.15m outside no.1 (a very high footfall area)
- Park Road – narrowing to 2.05m outside no.1 (a high footfall area)
But there are many others, please send your thoughts to Haringey at firstname.lastname@example.org, or direct to the relevant cabinet members, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. You don't ask, you don't get.
