Hundreds of local residents back Liberal Democrat campaign for safe crossing on North Hill

North Hill petition: Cllr Rachel Allison, Lynne Featherstone MP and local resident Jenny BouchamiHighgate Liberal Democrats and MP Lynne Featherstone have this week sent in a petition to Haringey Council signed by over 400 local residents backing a campaign to improve safety at a dangerous pedestrian crossing.

The campaign to get a pedestrian traffic light on the North Hill crossing, located next to the Highgate Group practice and close to the Mary Feilding’s Guild, has been running since the spring, and has proven exceptionally successful. Almost one in 20 Highgate residents have signed the petition.

Lynne Featherstone MP comments:

“It’s fantastic that the campaign has picked up such speed and has got the backing of over 400 local residents.

“Now the council will have to sit up and take notice- and do something to deal with this clearly dangerous crossing on one of Highgate’s busiest roads, right next to the old people’s home and the only GP practice in Highgate.”

Highgate Councillor Rachel Allison adds:

“Some of Highgate’s most vulnerable residents use the crossing on a daily basis. It should not be too much to ask for to them to feel safe crossing this road- and I certainly hope Haringey Council will agree!”
