There are a few transport updates to share with you, based on WHAT's meeting with Camden late last year. There were four points on the agenda for that meeting:
- The traffic lights at the Finchley Road/Fortune Green Road junction had been installed without consultation and have apparently made the junction even more dangerous as they confuse drivers. TfL has promised to "take action".
- The lights at the junction of Broadhurst Gardens and West End Lane are also deemed dangerous for pedestrians (As a regular user of these, the only danger I see is from the cars and cyclists who deliberately jump the lights). Camden is apparently going to install extra lights here. I'm not entirely sure how many more traffic lights that stretch of West End Lane needs?
- The lack of a lift at the Overground station, despite funding being available.
- General pedestrian congestion and safety in the area between the three stations (gold star if you knew that that is generally called the "interchange").
WHAT's AGM runs from 7.30pm-8.15pm. There's 15 minutes for refreshments and then the public meeting gets underway with a 9.45pm finish time. All are welcome.
