Consultation on Quieter Neighbourhood for Connaught Gdns N13
Enfield Council are consulting on these Quieter Neighbourhood treatments for the Connaught Gardens residential area. They include one-way streets with contraflow for bikes, 'point no-entries', sinusoidal speed humps and width restrictions to filter out HGVs.
The measures are based on residents' workshops which took place in 2013/14, a more recent perception survey and traffic surveys.
Hazelwood Lane, Connaught Gardens and Callard Ave form the main rat run through the area between the A105, Hedge Lane and the A406. No measures are being proposed for these streets. Hazelwood School is on Hazelwood Lane and residents report chaos at school run times, with conflict between parents trying to drive past each other on this narrow road, and sometimes mounting the pavement. The school operates a 'drop, wave and go' policy - children are dropped from the car and the parent drives off without parking, while teachers escort the children into the school.
