MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
Lib Dem traffic spokesperson, Susan Oatway has tabled an urgent oral question to the next full meeting of Haringey Council (4th October) regarding the traffic situation in Dukes Avenue and the neighbouring roads.
The request comes a week after a consultation report was published on road calming measures for Dukes Avenue and just days after a resident was hit by a car while crossing the road.
Cllr Oatway, who represents Alexandra ward, has worked closely over the last two years in drawing up the plans to tackle some of the traffic problems on the busy rat-running route. However now that the consultation report has been published, she wants Haringey Council to start implementing the measures and she will be seeking clear time scales to which the agreed work will be completed.
She says that the work will go someway to addressing the traffic problem, but there are still many issues regarding road safety in the area that are yet to be addressed.
Cllr Oatway comments: “The agreed works must be implemented as soon as possible before any more accidents happen. The area has been waiting long enough for these safety measures.”
