Friern Barnet Traffic Scheme

In the January 2019 issue of the FBWRA Newsletter we reported on proposals for a traffic scheme in Friern Barnet as set out in the Friern Barnet Lane, Buxted Road, Ashurst Road and Friern Park Discover Community Engagement Report January 2018 , a scheme which is directed at facilitating a proposed  “ Quietway” cycle  route from Hornsey  through Friern Barnet to North Finchley that is being funded by TfL .

FBWRA is now working with members and other residents of the local roads who would be most directly affected by the Scheme were it to be implemented, and we have funded a survey of residents’ opinions on the proposals. 

At the beginning of April members of FBWRA including our Chairman, Kate Salinger, and other members of the FBWRA Committee and also other local residents met with two of the Councillors (Cllr. Geof Cooke and Cllr. Barry Rawlings) representing Woodhouse and Coppetts Ward respectively, parts of both of would be affected by the Scheme, to discuss the proposals.

Buxted Road/ Ashurst Road junction, which would be diagonally closed, stopping through traffic between Woodhouse Road and Friern Barnet Lane and causing more congestion and pollution.

Following on from that meeting FBWRA has written to other Councillors and to Council officers, to ensure that FBWRA’s views on the proposals are known to  the relevant “stakeholders”- this is important as the proposals  are soon to be  finalised prior to their submission to a Council Committee for approval, and we have been concerned to get our, and residents’ view across before any decision is made.
