HIGHBURY LOW TRAFFIC NEIGHBOURHOODS (LTN)
HOW YOUR COUNCIL HAS MISLED YOU

Keep Highbury Moving is a diverse collection of Highbury people, many of whom were born in or have lived in Highbury for many decades. We include parents and carers for the elderly and disabled, local Highbury business people and ordinary families.

We support reducing traffic that cuts across Highbury, but we object to the way that this has been done through Islington Council undemocratically imposing sweeping LTNs, and we are deeply concerned about some of the negative impacts that LTNs continues to have on the Highbury community.

 

We have come together as a group because of these shared concerns, and to work together to get these concerns to and addressed by the Council.

OUR LATEST NEWS
  • This map has no official status but gives an idea what the proposal might look like.

  • Alternatives possible but effect the same: slower buses & essential traffic.

*Major delays can be expected by more traffic turning right, where there is only a single lane

 

All roads to be blocked between  

  • Green Lanes / Stokey and                            Highbury Grove / Blackstock 

  • Only access via St Pauls and Brownswood Roads.

​​

New left and right turns at Highbury Grove /

St Pauls junction​

  • Increased traffic from Grosvenor Rd closure

  • Traffic flow worse from extra turns

  • Very Expensive - £3-4m?

  • Poor use of funds, even for LTN supporters

COUNCIL'S MONITORING DATA AND CONSULTATION

RESULTS FOR HIGHBURY

KHM_BOOKLET_JAN23 V4 WEB.png

COLLATED FEEDBACK FROM ACROSS THE SEVEN ISLINGTON LTN TRIALS

In reality the consultation results clearly show that for the majority of respondents the trials were consistently ineffective at best and detrimental at worst, with certain protected characteristics groups emphatically disliking the trials (disability) or their views not being sufficiently captured (race). 

This document collates some of the key indicative results from Islington Council’s consultation on the 7 Islington LTN trials that it implemented in 2020-2021.

Islington Council claims that the consultation results show that the LTN trials achieve their objectives (being to improve air quality, to increase active travel and to reduce road danger). 

Feedback from the boundary road respondents, who bear the brunt of the trials through traffic displacement, was completely obscured.  The complete document is here.
