STOP THE LOW TRAFFIC NEIGHBOURHOOD (LTN) SCHEMES IN ENFIELD
The rushed and chaotic introduction of the Low Traffic Neighbourhood schemes (LTNs) in Enfield has created much more congestion and pollution, as well as increasing the risk of traffic accidents.
Labour led Enfield Council has failed to properly consult residents on the LTN schemes. The LTN schemes are detrimental to businesses that rely on road transport.
There’s confusion over the camera LTN road signs that have resulted in the council extracting over £3m in PCN fines. Emergency services experience delays, and it is unclear how the council is monitoring pollution levels on the main roads.
Cllr Maria Alexandrou, Shadow Cabinet Member for climate change states: "Labour have failed to introduce green modes of transport such as a bike hire scheme and e-bikes, Pavements have not been fixed and new pedestrian crossings have not been implemented to promote active travel".
The argument that the LTN schemes reduce traffic by making it inconvenient to drive is flawed. It just pushes traffic onto surrounding roads with more condensed congestion and traffic fumes.
