'A cry from the heart of Bowes'


In what has been called "a cry from the heart of Bowes", residents of  Brownlow Road, Warwick Road and nearby streets have come together to launch a campaign to prevent traffic in the area building up to the unacceptably high levels that were normal prior to the Covid-19 lockdown. Their proposal for a low-traffic neighbourhood is very much in line with policies announced in recent weeks by the government, the Mayor of London and Enfield Council.

The proposed scheme involves installing bollards or planters to block off streets at strategic points, preventing traffic using any of the streets in the area as a cut-through between Bounds Green Road and the North Circular. A "bus gate" in Brownlow Road would let through only buses and possibly, depending on the technology used, local drivers too. Read more.
