TOPIC: Connaught Gardens Quieter Neighbourhood consultation now on

Connaught Gardens Quieter Neighbourhood consultation now on 21 Oct 2017 13:52 #3265

Arnold Gardens changes look as if they will be effective in stopping this street being used as a rat run. However, surely this will mean that the rat runners will use Callard Avenue instead? So it won't stop the fast rat runners along Connaught Gardens who turn right into Hazelwood Lane and are a big menace.

At the far end of the scheme, one-waying Osborne and Windsor Roads will add to the traffic on Park Avenue and New River Crescent. The council should either abandon the one-way scheme or take serious steps to calm Park Avenue, which too many drivers go along at high speed. It needs speed humps anyway, even as things are, and a narrowing at Lightcliffe Road junction to discourage fast through traffic.

These measures fail to address a number of questions. Where is the traffic coming from and going too? Why are they using Callard Avenue and Arnold Gardens as a cut through?
The possible answer is they are coming from the west of the borough (Southgate/ Winchmore Hill) via Bourne Hill and going East via A406 and A10.
Why are they using these roads, because the Bowes Road/ A406 junction is horrendous and the Hedge Lane/ Great Cambridge Roundabout lights are badly phased, so very few cars get through with the traffic backing up Hedge Lane. Which inturn forces traffic into Lightcliff through to Connaught Gardens.

Until these junctions are improved people will continue to use these "short cuts" to get on to the A406.

As someone who comes from the west (nr Southgate) heading East, I cannot see the above at all. Why would I/drivers ever need to bother with Callard or Arnold? Bourne Hill then over Green Lanes onto Hedge Lane straight down to A406. Very efficient.

Totally bizarre someone would change this direct journey to go via Callard/Arnold.

Fed up backed up Green Lanes traffic might turn off and head down Oakthorpe but that's about it.
