Last chance to have your say on Haringey’s Cycle Superhighway
Here’s our proposed response to Transport for London’s Cycle Superhighway route 1 (CS1) consultation which ends on Sunday.
The response below is a draft on behalf of Haringey Cycling Campaign and London Cycling Campaign – there may be minor edits after the London Cycling Campaign IRG (Infrastructure Review Group) meeting on Thursday 26th March.
We feel there are many problems with the present proposals.
TfL are already reconsidering the South section of the route through Haringey, following our objections to the St Ann’s Road alignment.
Hopefully there will also be a rethink on the centre section from South Tottenham station, past Seven Sisters Road to Philip Lane, which includes sections of shared space on the pavement outside a busy Seven Sisters underground station entrance and High Road bus stop – where local cyclists have recently been stopped from cycling by MPS Haringey (although the acting Inspector has since apologised by email and sent a memo to all neighbourhood team reminding officers what a shared use space sign looks like).
Please let TfL know your views! The deadline for responses is Sunday the 29th March.
