Question

I have previously raised concerns about crossing facilities in North Hill in Haringey in MQ 2012/0077 where pedestrians experience difficulties attempting to cross the road at the junction of North Hill with Church Road in Highgate. Despite the presence of traffic lights this is a junction which currently lacks any formal pedestrian crossing facilities. A care home, GP surgery, nursery and junior school are all located at this location and there is an understandable fear that uses of these services are at particular risk of harm. What action are you taking to improve the pedestrian crossing facilities at this location?

The Leader of Haringey Council has also highlighted this issue with me. As a consequence, Haringey Council, who are the Highway Authority for these roads, commissioned consultants to review the junction earlier this year and are currently assessing options which include providing pedestrian facilities.  Any proposals could be funded through the support TfL provides via the Local Implementation Plan (LIP) process, with implementation potentially taking place in 2015/16.
