Closed 14 Feb 2021

Opened 4 Jan 2021

Overview

The Council is proposing to introduce road safety measures along the length of New North Road, between Fencepiece Road and The Lowe.

The proposed safety scheme includes the following proposals as shown on Plan Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5:

  • Introduction of a 20mph Zone in the New North Road area bounded by Fencepiece Road and The Lowe as shown on Plan No. 1;
  • Introduction of 3 No. Pedestrian Islands with speed cushions (75 mm high), as shown on Plan Nos. 2 and 3;
  • Introduction of speed cushions (75mm high) at the 3 existing Pedestrian Islands, as shown on Plan Nos. 3 and 4;
  • Introduction of speed cushions (75 mm high, two and three across the width of carriageway), as shown on Plan Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5;
  • Introduction of raised flat top speed humps (75mm high) to be constructed kerb to kerb at the existing pelican crossings, as shown on Plan Nos. 3 and 5;
  • Introduction of 4 No. Vehicle Activated Signs (VAS), as shown on Plan Nos. 2, 3 and 5;
  • Introduction of Bus Stop Clearways, as shown on Plan Nos. 2 and 5;
  • Introduction of 4-wheel footway parking, as shown on Plan No. 3;
  • Remove existing footway parking in New North Road, as shown on Plan No. 4;
  • Introduction of a ‘Loading Bay’ in Beech Grove, as shown on Plan No. 4;
  • Introduction of “At Any Time” waiting restrictions (double yellow lines) throughout the length of New North Road, between Fencepiece Road and The Lowe as shown on Plan Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5.

We are also proposing to introduce updated signage and refresh all existing road markings along the length of New North Road, between Fencepiece Road.

The Metropolitan Police, London Fire Brigade, London Ambulance Services, London Buses and Transport for London are also being consulted on the proposals.

The main objective of the proposed scheme is to make this route safer for all road users. By doing so, this will help reduce road accidents and vehicular speeds, assist pedestrians and vulnerable road users to cross the road safely and reduce visibility problems. Changing the road appearance provides a way of altering driver attitude and behaviour thus, improving driver awareness and road safety in the area.
