Update on calls for another look at successfull one way system

Traffic congestion on Hornsey Park Road remains a problem

The Association's calls for a meeting with councillors and managers at the council to learn lessons from the successful one way system in Hornsey Park Road last autumn have been answered partly through the offer to join a group to look at how Wood Green's town centre can be boosted and make more attractive to shoppers and visitors from all around. Borrowing on the ideas of Mary Portas and success in Harringay Green Lanes, the group will look at:

  • Improving the diversity of business in Wood Green and reducing the clustering of negative shops such as betting shops and payday loan shops
  • Improving the environment on our high street, eg. Street furniture, environment on our pavements
  • Influencing transport strategy to reduce congestion on High Road and surrounding side roads, particularly on Hornsey Park Road
  • Advising on problems faced by residents from anti-social behaviour resulting from negative elements on the High Road

While not the meeting we had called for, it is exactly the forum in which the problems in Hornsey Park Road should be considered since the road has, unfairly become a key component of the town centre's transport system. Laste November, PMRA established a subgroup to champion the case for another look at the benefits brought by the one way system and this will now feed into the suggested Wood Green Action Group. Another meeting is planned late February 2012.
