Sorry for not keeping people updated over the summer, but I’ve been having a bit of a break from it all.
As stated in a previous post, Wharfdale Road was scheduled to be resurfaced, with the work starting on 25th July. This obviously didn’t happen, so I rang the council to find out why. Apparently they don’t have enough money at the moment, but the work may be carried out during the next financial year.
Works to the Wharfdale Road/Caledonian Road junction (including replacement of the traffic lights with pedestrian-controlled crossings) were scheduled to start on 28th September. According to TfL’s website, this has now been brought forward to 17th September.
Joe Cooper, a reporter from the Islington Tribune, came round on Wednesday to interview local people for an article, which you can read here.
Here’s a photo of him taking a photo of the excited residents:
The next major task is to make sure that the lights don’t find their way back here when changes are made to the King’s Cross gyratory scheme. We hope that we can all work together to ensure that this doesn’t happen.
