TOPIC: Concern over planned closures of Bowes Road section of North Circular Road

Concern over planned closures of Bowes Road section of North Circular Road 16 Dec 2018 13:43 #4302

[Original article]

This week’s Enfield Independent carried a traffic regulation notice from TfL stating that cycle improvements works (unspecified) on the A406 would result in eastbound traffic being diverted along Powys Lane, Aldermans Hill and Green Lanes and westbound traffic via Green Lanes, Aldermans Hill, Powys Lane and Wilmer Way at unspecified times from 5 Jan to 31 Dec 2019!

Even if infrequently invoked these diversions would have potentially devastating effects on already busy roads and add potentially large loads to local pollution levels.

I therefore asked Councillor Daniel Andersen whether Enfield knew about this. His answer is:

I understand that officers first became aware of this earlier in the week and immediately raised concerns with TfL. 

It now appears that there are also some issues regarding the proposed cycle route south of the NCR and the cost of the scheme. The bottom line is that the works will now not be taking place until next financial year, so we have time to properly engage with TfL about the traffic management arrangements.

I have made clear my dissatisfaction with TfL’s lack of engagement.

OMFG that's absolutely disgraceful! Especially as there's no info on even what works are being carried out!

From memory, the Q10 consultation was going to amend the crossing at the top of Palmerston Road, better connecting with P Crescent, but that's all I can think of.

This appears to be the consultation by TfL. Interesting that the letter drop was entirely to the south of the A406 as I read it.

Yes, that's the one, remember replying. Didn't get a letter drop so assume I just saw it on London cycling forums.

Wouldn't surprise me if TfL only letter dropped the residents they assumed would be affected by the scheme once completed, didn't think about their crazy implementation plans and give thought to consulting on those with those affected residents.
