The London Borough of Islington is using the same tactic of closing roads using Experimental Traffic Orders as some other London boroughs. They are using the Covid-19 epidemic as an excuse to make them “people friendly streets”. They are also using the CommonPlace system as an alternative to proper public consultation – see https://islingtonpeoplefriendlystreets.commonplace.is/
But there is already substantial opposition to the closures which will just force traffic onto other roads. A petition against the proposals has been created on Change.org – see https://www.change.org/p/islington-residents-stop-islington-councils-closure-of-local-roads?
Please sign the petition. Closing roads is hardly ever justified and particularly so at the present time when an efficient and open road network is so essential for transport of all kinds.
