Rachel Allison, Liberal Democrat borough councillor for Highgate, and local MP Lynne Featherstone, have pledged to carry on pressing for safety improvements in the area after this latest success in a long campaign.
Councillor Allison commented:
“I first urged Transport for London to do something about the junction five years ago, before I was elected to the local council. I am delighted that the pedestrian count-down has now been installed but I still want to see safety improvements to the lights further down Archway Road outside Richardson’s.”
Lynne Featherstone, Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament for Hornsey and Wood Green, added:
“I am sure the count-down will make a contribution to safety at the junction but it remains a dangerous area for pedestrians – including many parents with young children. We will keep up the pressure for further action to make the local roads safer.”
