KEEP OUR CHILDREN SAFE Alston Road Barnet EN5 - Traffic Calming

We the undersigned petition the council to Propose a robust traffic calming solution for Alston Road. 20mph speed limit

An 11 year old boy was struck by a car today (5th December) on Alston Road just outside the Sebright Arms. Fortunately he is okay. This has highlighted an ongoing traffic problem on Alston Road. A road that is used daily by pupils from two nearby junior schools, Foulds and Christchurch.
The road is a rat run from St Albans Road to Woodstreet. Cars regularly speed through this narrow road, especially during rush hour. Often speeding up to squeeze passed parked cars. This also leads to a secondary problem of cars getting stuck in a head to head funnel. Drivers regularly have to back up or get out of cars - an equally dangerous situation for pedestrians.
It is only a matter of time before there is a serious or fatal accident. We emplore the council to take action immediately.

This ePetition ran from 05/12/2018 to 01/03/2019 and has now finished.
