The Fox Lane LTN consultion has closed.

Enfield Council was given an undertalking that

the LTN trial will be evaluated based on:

* Residents' views on how the benefits of the project compare against the disbenefits

 

* 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.

Winchmore Hill councillor Dinah Barry

 "a bit more complicated than blocking off a few roads"

 "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?"

Twenty is Plenty in Winchmore Hill

on Monday, 24 November 2014. Posted in N21 Community

 

 

 

 

Currently, in the borough of Enfield, 'less than 10% of our roads are 20mph' zones, compared to Islington and Camden council which have adopted 20mph on all residential borough roads.

Let's bring 30mph zones down to 20mph. Why?


Well, if you're...

• Hit by a car at 40 mph, 9 out of 10 pedestrians will be killed

• Hit by a car at 30 mph, about half of pedestrians will live

• Hit by a car at 20 mph, only 1 pedestrian out of 10 will be killed

Roads are the biggest killer of children as pedestrians (5-19 years old), and young adults as passengers or drivers of cars, more details here

 

Deaths of children aged 11 to 16 not attributed to disease 2006-7

 

 

 

In Portsmouth the 20mph limit on all residential roads has reduced casualties by 22%. Imagine a drug which reduced the mortality of a particular cause by just 4.3%, and it was a major cause, one would probably expect the noble peace prize for medicine.

 

The campaign, 20's plenty, is connected to a national voluntary group where local groups have sprung up to improve their surroundings etc., councillors have begun listening to members of the community and making this possible. It was 80 years ago when there were less than 2 million cars on the road that 30 mph was implemented on residential roads. Now there are over 33 million. This is long overdue!

 

To be clear, this is NOT about: Speed cameras! Road humps! The Department for Transport have made it clear in recent guidelines that:

20 mph zones require traffic calming measures or repeater speed limit signing and/or roundel road markings at regular intervals.

 

It is no longer mandatory to impose physical measures such as speed bumps when adopting a 20 mph limit in residential areas (DfT Guidelines). The one thing we would like done immediately by Enfield council, so as to begin to feel the effects straight away, is to stick a sign that says 20mph on a circular piece of plastic over the 30mph signs. Easily done, we think!

 

Also, a traffic island would clearly help with gaining access to St Paul's Church which is in daily use - just as the pedestrians crossing outside Groveland's Park (on Church Hill) has proved essential.

 

This campaign is looking to bring the 20mph limit to Church Hill and Station Road in Winchmore Hill. We had our first meeting on the 16th of November where we agreed to raise awareness when and where we can. 20's plenty, aims to save lives and help create a safer, calmer and cleaner environment for all ages.

    This is the thin edge of the wedge. Islington and Camden are going mad with 20mph zones on major roads, not just the residential side streets. Late at night one has to daudle along at 20 on these major routes. Absolute madness. Pleas no more 20mph expansion. Around schools is enough
