The Fox Lane LTN consultion has closed.

Enfield Council was given an undertalking that

the LTN trial will be evaluated based on:

* Data on the volume of motor vehicle movements in the area


* Data on the speed of motor vehicles in the area


* Impacts on the primary roads surrounding the area


* Bus journey time considerations through discussion with Transport for London


* Outcomes of ongoing dialogue with the emergency services.

 Please, I can't breathe


Southgate Green a Friday afternoon, but it could be any afternoon – same congested traffic, kids playing oblivious of the fumes, traffic crawling from Waterfall Road, Cannon Hill, and the Green, all the way to Southgate Circus

How can this be acceptable?

 "Is the lack of consultation part of the problem?"

asks Bambos Charalambous in Parliament?"


"Has not that been caused by the Government's insistence that the schemes be implemented straightaway within an eight-week period, not allowing any consultation with communities or very limited consultation at best?"





"this is the road my son walks to school along"

Crossrail 2 - an appeal in support of the Alexandra Palace Interchange

on Monday, 30 November 2015. Posted in N21 Community






Planning for Crossrail 2 is now underway; it is a massive infrastructure investment, which will ease congestion on many of our most overcrowded lines; stimulate local economies, supporting London's growing population and economy.






The Crossrail 2 public consultation is now open, to help will help determine:

• Station locations, entrances and exits for the tunnelled section of the route

• The location of ventilation shafts for the tunnelled section

• The construction sites required to build and operate the tunnelled section of the scheme

• Proposed service patterns and changes to existing National Rail services


There are two options being put forward for the section of the route between Seven Sisters and New Southgate.



Possible route alignment via Turnpike Lane and Alexandra Palace

This option proposes routing Crossrail 2 from Seven Sisters via two new Crossrail 2 stations and then onwards to New Southgate.

This option would:

• Reduce crowding on existing services at Turnpike Lane by up to 60 per cent on westbound trains during the morning peak

• Provide an interchange with the Piccadilly line at Turnpike Lane

• Provide an interchange with National Rail services on the Great Northern railway line at Alexandra Palace, before reaching central London. This option would mean the route would not serve Wood Green.


A possible alternative location for a new Crossrail 2 station at Wood Green

If the line instead took a slightly more northerly route, there would be a station at Wood Green. This option would:

• Reduce crowding on the existing services at Wood Green during the morning peak and reduce journey times into central London

• Provide an interchange with the Piccadilly line

• Support Haringey's aspiration for the redevelopment of Wood Green High Street

• Be situated in the main retail area of Wood Green with access to shops, leisure and services


This option would mean the route would not serve Turnpike Lane or Alexandra Palace.


Your local councillors, together with senior Enfield Council officers believe that the first option would deliver more benefits. It would serve a wider number of people, in the boroughs of Enfield, Haringey and Barnet, and the western side of Hertfordshire, complementing the route to Waltham Cross and Broxbourne.


You can read about the proposals in more detail here


If you agree that the first option via Alexandra Palace/Turnpike Lane interchange would be more beneficialI would urge you to take part in the consultation.


You can comment on all of the route (you will notice that other sections look a bit different from the map at the top) or just this section.


The consultation is open until Friday 8 January 2016


There are two public exhibitions of the proposals

Ducketts Common (across Green Lanes from Turnpike Lane station): Friday 4 December from 12.00pm - 8.00pm and Saturday 5 December from 11.00am - 4.00pm


Alexandra Palace Station: Monday 7 December from 12pm - 8.00pm
