Cally south two way traffic public meeting

meeting poster

Taken from callysouth.co.uk:

In just over a week, local residents will have the opportunity to discuss the problems caused by
the implementation of the two-way system on Caledonian Rd with one of our local councillors, Paul Convery, plus two representatives from Islington Council. We hope that a solution can be found.

The meeting will take place at 7.00pm on Monday 8th June, on the first floor of The Driver, 2-4 Wharfdale Rd.

There will only be room for 60 people, so we may have to limit attendance to residents of the worst-affected area: Wharfdale Rd, Caledonian Rd (up to the canal bridge), Northdown St and Balfe St.

Please leave a comment on our website telling us whether or not you will be attending, to give us some idea of how many people we can expect.

Over the next week, we will be posting information on our site about the environmental impact of traffic on the area, along with some questions that we want the council to answer.

Our yellow posters and flyers will be appearing around the area over the next few days!

      Hi Jeremy,

      The introduction of two way traffic at the south end of the Cally and the new layout at the west end of Wharfdale Road are all part of the campaign to get rid of the King’s Cross gyratory system. Islington Council made the changes to put pressure on Transport for London. We’ll be doing an update on the gyratory campaign on this site next week.

    Just to clarify – anyone who is affected by the changes made to the traffic flow on Caledonian Road is welcome to attend the meeting.

    The main reason we are targeting the roads mentioned above (with flyers and posters) is due to our limited resources!

    There will be space for about 60 people, and at the moment we have no idea at all how many might attend. You can help us to estimate the number of people who might turn up by leaving a comment on http://www.callysouth.co.uk.
