Beaufort Park Pollution Barrier

We the undersigned petition the council to construct a traffic barrier to protect the Beaufort Park community from vehicle emissions from the A406 North Circular and A1 roads, at Henlys Corner, as part of the London Borough of Barnet Air Quality Action Plan 2017-2022 (AQAP).

The A406 North Circular joins the A1 at Henlys Corner next to Beaufort Park. Traffic is heavy day and night, with many large goods vehicles using the route. The houses of the Beaufort Park estate lie right next to both roads, have no vehicle emissions protection and are exposed directly to the traffic. There is considerable noise and atmospheric pollution which has exacerbated bronchial and cardiovascular problems for local residents, many of whom are children and elderly residents. This is a pressing issue which needs to be addressed, particularly with recent evidence showing links between traffic pollution and ill health and its exacerbation of symptoms of Covid-19. It is in full accord with the London Borough of Barnet Air Quality Action Plan 2017-2022 (AQAP), for which funding has been set aside.

This ePetition runs from 12/10/2020 to 12/10/2021.
