The residents have long been campaigning for better safety on and around the junction.
On the site visit, the residents described the problems faced on a daily basis – including drivers not realising that there is a second red light and driving through, pedestrians not being able to see oncoming traffic, poor phasing of traffic lights, and no ‘green man’ signalling to guide pedestrians.
Campaigners say that these problems pose a safety risk – and that they have seen many near misses.
The Liberal Democrat MP – who has previously made representations on this issue – has now written again to both Transport for London and Haringey Council (who share management of the junction) and requested a site visit with them and the local residents.
Lynne Featherstone MP commented:
“These residents have done a fantastic job of raising awareness of this issue and campaigning for better road safety at this dangerous junction.
“I am happy to get involved to support their cause. I have now written again to both TfL and Haringey Council, demanding a meeting with them on site so they can see the problems for themselves.
“I hope this will lead to action – vast improvements on this junction may well be necessary to prevent a serious accident here in the future.”
