Bike Breakfast, Monday morning on Wightman Road!

wightmanPhoto care of @Living_Wightman

Current bridge replacement works on Wightman Road, N8, have shown how closing a road to through motor traffic can make a place where children can play in the street, neighbours stop for a chat and families can cycle together safely.

To celebrate the rebirth of this residential community, we have teamed up with ‘Living Wightman’, a local community movement working towards a better future for Wightman Road and the Harringay Ladder. For the morning commute on Monday 13 June (7:30 – 9:30) we will hold a Bike Week ‘bike breakfast’ on the north side of the bridge works on Wightman Road.

From 8:30 we will be joined by Joanne McCartney, London’s Deputy Mayor and Enfield and Haringey London Assembly member, Councillor Peray Ahmet, Haringey Council Cabinet Member for the Environment and Harringay ward Councillor Emine Ibrahim.

Look forward to seeing you all on Monday!

We’re meeting at 9.30am on Ducketts Common, opposite Turnpike Lane tube station, right in the middle of Haringey.

Our next ride around Haringey – EAST

We’ll be riding around the borough with Cllr MacNamara and Cllr Mallett again on Friday 17th October, and this time, we’re heading EAST.

We’ve compiled a list of locations to visit – if you have anything to add, please contact us by 12pm on Friday. 

Watch out for a report after the ride…. and for details of our final ride when we’ll cover the west of the borough.

Cycling Tour de Haringey – EAST

Friday 17th October 2014

Number of visit

Location

Issue

22

Forster Road/junction of Winchelsea Road

Should be two way for cycling (where the bridge is)

21

Entrance to Napier Road on Philip Lane

This IS two way for cycles – car parking space needs to be removed close to entrance to allow space for cycles to enter

20

Lawrence Road

road closed – very wide and useful road with little cycling provision.

1

North Grove/ Hermitage Road

GOOD example of HCC advice being followed, allowing cycle access in to North Grove!

3

Downhills Park

Good new entrances – wider with just bollards

4

The Roundway/Risley Avenue junction

Blind bend. Toucan Crossing required – or new style crossing – see LCDS.

5

The Roundway/All Hallows Road

Very wide crossing of The Roundway – add an Island?

6

Church Road – under railway

Emergency access barrier on road – not space to cycle around the side of bollards

7

Park Lane

Same as above

8

Marigold Road/Watermead Way

Poorly maintained cycle infrastructure – lane on pavement

9

Park View Road barrier and tunnel

Tunnel regularly flooded. Barrier obstruction!

10

Ashley Road barrier

Same as above

11

Hale Road toucan crossing

Timing problem

2

Avenue Road/end of Roslyn Road and Sleaford Road

Short stretch should become 2 way for cycles

Around Tottenham Hale – the former Gyratory

13

Monument Way toucan crossings

Refuge unsuitable for cycles and peds

18

High Road, West Green to j/w Town Hall Approach

Unsegregated shared footway – not suitable for amount of ped traffic and paving slab signage not adequate

16

Pavement north of War Memorial at Town Hall Approach

New lit shared use signage, pavement narrows

17

ASL on Town Hall approach/unmade surface

Not enough space to enter ASL/road and unmade area next to shared use pavement – this is responsibility of LBH

15

High Road/ Town Hall Approach area

Crossing not in desire line

14

High Road/Philip Lane junction

Difficult right turn – not signalized – no ped crossing light on Philip Lane

19

Broad Lane/ Markfield Road junction

Pocket required to enable right turn in to Markfield Road.

12

Within former Gyratory

All roads should be two-way for cycles – difficult to navigate through

Screen shot 2014-09-05 at 10.05.34

 

We’re off on a ride with local residents and Cabinet Member for the Environment – Councillor Stuart McNamara (one of our members is kindly loaning Stuart a bike for the occasion!)

There’s so many places to take Cllr McNamara, but here’s the route we’ve agreed, to take in as many ‘problem spots’ as possible in the time available:

LCN 54 back way to Whymark Ave and Turnpike La Junction where current work  appears to be narrowing the road making it difficult to access ASL
Ducketts Common one-way
Harringay Rd rat run
Seymour rd or Hewitt rd unreasonable one-way and sub-standard traffic calming.
Wightman rd
Tottenham Lane left hook/one-way
Cross Lane
Newland rd
Western Ave railings etc
I’ve you’ve got any comments on the spots we’ll visit, leave a comment below and we’ll add your feedback.
