The arriving of a temporary sign directing traffic to the new recycling centre may not be attractive but it is welcome, none the less, as a modest attempt by the council to encourage traffic to use the six year old spine road.
We have asked the council to provide a smaller, better positioned sign, once people are familiar with the new location of the recycling centre and reinstate the missing 'alternative route to Wood Green', missing for the past four years.
Meanwhile, TfL has been unable to even acknowledge our complaint at the increasing use of Hornsey Park Road by buses - in the case of the no.144s, with puzzled and disorientated passengers gazing on.
Life on Hornsey Park Road has been plagued with problems including noise, pollution and crumbling pavements, on top of this there appears to be a lack of strategic vision for the future. Council Leader Peray Ahmet and a few of her fellow councillors came to discuss the issues with our representatives.
Eight of us got out before the rain last Saturday. We cut back a lot of growth at the Lavender Garden ready for winter. Most of what we cleared has now gone down for composting. By John Miles
The loss of trees is becoming an issue locally. The wonderful false acacia at the junction of Mayes Road and Coburg Road was removed because it ‘had a fungus’ - just in time for the planning application to build on the petrol station site beside it.
