  • Baring Street Road Safety Improvements

    Created by David Lincoln // 1 thread

    Islington Council is proposing to make road safety improvements to reduce traffic speeds on Baring Street to tackle speeding issue for the safety of the community.

    We are seeking your views on the council’s proposals to implement the following:

    • Installing speed cushions along the road. These are ‘bus friendly’ and should reduce general traffic speeds, but not hinder the journey for buses.
    • Installing a raised Zebra pedestrian crossing with associated yellow flashing beacons and tactile paving located between the eastbound and westbound bus stops. This is to help people cross the road to access either of the bus stops. The removal of some parking spaces to make space for the crossing would be necessary However it was noted that parking bays are not fully occupied during the traffic survey.
    • Building out sections of footway with planters to guide traffic around parked cars.
    • Providing electric vehicle charging bays to the western end of Baring Street in line with the Council’s sustainable transport goals.

  • Ambler School Streets Consultation

    Created by David Lincoln // 1 thread

    Islington Council is planning to introduce a School Street Scheme to improve air quality around Ambler Primary School and create a safer, more pleasant environment for everyone. The Council would like to hear your thoughts on the proposal.

    The proposal is to trial a temporary road closure on Romilly Road (between Ambler Road and Monsell Road) between 8.30am - 9.15am and 3.15pm - 4pm during school term time.

    Vehicles will not be able to enter the street between these times unless they have been given an
    exemption. Residents and businesses who live and work on a school street will be able to register for an exemption as well as Blue Badge holders. The scheme will not operate in the school holidays or at weekends.

    Signs will inform drivers of the restrictions before the entrance to the closed street. Non-registered vehicles entering the street during the times of operation may be identified by camera and issued a penalty charge notice.
