Noel Park Conservatives are backing PMRA

Misery for drivers and residents: Hornsey Park Road lunchtime traffic

Misery for drivers and residents: Hornsey Park Road lunchtime traffic

Maybe it's the upcoming elections, maybe it is just common sense winning the day, but Parkside Malvern Residents Association are getting a lot of support from local politicians for their campaign to distribute the traffic that is currently shouldered by Hornsey Park Road alone.

Karen Jennings, the Labour Party candidate for parliament for Hornsey and Wood Green had already partaken in our roadside protest back in October 2009 , now a Noel Park Conservative Party leaflet that fell through our letterbox a week ago is demanding better signage for the spine road.

"You wouldn't know the Spine Road was there unless you were shown". Our point exactly.

More from the leaflet:

"Noel Park Conservatives are backing the Parkside Residents' Association for better signage to the Spine Road, taking traffic away from the already heavily congested Hornsey Park Road."

"Given that the curves make it impassable for buses, we should be diverting as much car traffic [to the Spine Road] as possible, away from the houses ."

The Residents' Association is planning another protest soon, contact us if you are interested in taking part, email for more information.

    • Could Hornsey Park Road become a living street?

      If you live in Hornsey Park Road now’s the time to demand change. The street is often in poor repair and the pavements a disgrace. The figures from 2014 show 8-9000 vehicles a day travelling in each direction.
