"in the Bounds Green area next to the North Circular road? These changes mean that where as there are a number
Ways to at present to leave and return to the area other than the North Circular, from tomorrow (I believe)
All of us who live in this collection of about 10 streets will only be able to use Highworth rd and Warwick rd (both in N11)
Which lead onto the North Circular.
In order to return to our homes by car/van we will either have to turn right onto Warwick rd if we are coming from the west, or turn
Left onto Warwick rd if we are coming from the east. Warwick rd is controlled by traffic lights and at present only two or maximum three
Vehicles can get through once the lights have turned red to oncoming traffic. Because of the changes there are liable to be at least ten to
Fifteen cars/vans waiting to turn right onto Warwick rd at any time during the day. This will block the outside lane of the North Circular and make an already congested artiel
Road even more blocked. Similarly traffic trying to turn left into Warwick rd will block the inside lane of the North Circular heading west. This is because Warwick rd
Is quite narrow and always has vehicles parked on both sides which means it is difficult for traffic to pass freely until one side has cleared the way. As this will be our
Only way back into our homes apart from Highworth rd it is liable to create a tail back towards Brownlow rd or even further.
Highworth rd is also narrow and has a school on it at the corner with the North Circular. I fear the same problem of blockages created by traffic trying to leave and enter it
At the same time will happen there, especially during school drop off and collection times. Again, I fear traffic will get backed up on the North Circular causing more pollution
In an already very polluted area.
Today there has already been a long tail back along Bounds Green rd heading from Bounds Green tube station to the North Circular where traffic cannot turn
Which I'm sure will result in many u turns just beyond the lights towards New Southgate."
