Take measures to reduce traffic speed on Fortis Green

We the undersigned petition the council to Take measures to reduce the speed of traffic on Fortis Green, such as reducing speed limit to 20 mph or introducing speed bumps.

Fortis Green is a long straight flat road with narrow pavements which sees heavy speeding traffic including large lorries and buses. It's also a busy pedestrian thoroughfare with many families with young children. There is a history of pedestrian accidents at the low visibility zebra crossing at the Fortis Green / Durham road junction. There is also very narrow pavement with a very badly placed bus stop at the junction with the High Street, meaning people queue up and pedestrians are often forced to step into the high street. Also the speed limit is 20mph on Fortis Green as you leave Muswell Hill meaning that cars often speed up as they enter East Finchley.
The safety of pedestrians would be greatly improved if measures were taken to slow traffic down.

This ePetition runs from 03/11/2019 to 30/01/2020.
