  1. As a resident of Wharfdale Road, I would obviously like less traffic thundering past my flat, and hopefully the finalised scheme will deliver that.

    My main concerns are:

    1 How will rat-running be discouraged?
    2 Will anything be put in place to stop HGVs using Wharfdale Road?
    3 I would like fewer (preferably no) buses travelling along Wharfdale Rd – which buses will be rerouted – and will the highly-polluting bus stop be removed?
    4 Will there be traffic lights at the Wharfdale – Caledonian junction? (I hope not.)

    Islington Council and TfL will have already thought about these things:

    ——————————————————————————————————FROM THE TfL WEBSITE
    As a result of two-way traffic operation, we expect through traffic on some streets, including Swinton Street, Acton Street and Wharfdale Road, to reduce and to see an improvement in the local environment. In order to achieve these plans, there would be some changes to the turning movements in and out of roads. This would include the introduction of new permitted and banned turns.

    I’ve thought about them as well (as I’m sure many of us have), and will address them in my response to the consultation.

    It would be interesting to know whether or not other residents agree, and what ideas you have.
