"The trouble with stats is that they don't always obey. Should cycle lanes go through central Crouch End - taking maybe 25-30% of road space, what percentage of journey kilometres will the cyclists account for? Best not ask."

Adrian Essex replied to Mark Crouch End's discussion Kober resigns
"This is a serious question. I believe that the officers of Haringey council have the authority to take the contract on HDV through to completion. If they do so then all they need is a signature from the leader of the council. CK has stated she will…"
