Answer

Answer for Seven Sisters Road

Answer for Seven Sisters Road

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The proposed scheme aims to reduce to barrier that the Seven Sisters road poses to the residents of the Woodberry Down estate and will improve the urban realm in this area, which I support. I wrote to Central Government to express this support for this scheme and others in June 2008. I am aware of Hackney's proposals to reduce the number of lanes from 6 to 4 and the concerns of the residents in doing so, and I am aware of local concerns. Therefore, I have asked TfL to review the impact this will have on traffic, and to visit the area and meet with local residents to hear their concerns.
