The lists below are based on data collected by Enfield Council in late November/early December 2018 - baseline data for comparing with data which will collected after implementation of the Fox Lane Quieter Neighbourhood scheme and be used to judge its effectiveness.

The data was collected in three separate batches at ten (or in one case eleven) points, as shown on the maps.  The numbers shown are totals for vehicles in both directions over the week-long collection period, maximum speeds for the week etc.

Residents say Yes to Low Traffic!

As people living in and around Fox Lane await a revised low-traffic neighbourhood proposal from Enfield Council, support for a scheme which would completely rid their streets of the plague of rat-running is growing.

At the meeting, on Thursday 20th February, the FLDRA Committee will be proposing that the Association adopt a formal position calling for a revised plan which, while incorporating traffic calming, would keep as many roads 'open' as possible.
