Cycle route improvements

The new improvements to the junction of Amhurst Road/Farleigh Road have now been completed.

This is part of the development of the new cycle route from Finsbury Park to Victoria Park ahead of the Olympic Games in 2012. See here for a picture of how the junction looked before!

We also worked with residents to secure improvements to the Palatine Road/Butterfield Green part of the route and updated information on the works programme will be sent to residents this week. As a result of the campaign with Living Streets, the Shakespeare Area Residents' Association and other local residents - the proposed benches have been abandoned, the cycle lane will remain in its original position rather than being moved to the middle, cycle stands will be installed, fruit trees will be planted and the green bed will also be improved.
