Reduce traffic on new Quietway

This petition had 1,531 supporters

Islington has secured money from TfL to build a cycling Quietway from Finsbury Park to Clerkenwell. The route is quieter than Holloway Road, but it is still heavily used by through traffic. We want the council to trial removing the majority of traffic from this route by only providing local access. After a 6-month trial and comprehensive traffic counts before and during, the council can make an informed decision about the proposal.

This is a great opportunity for cycling money to be used to benefit local communities. Installing traffic filters at strategic points on Westbourne Road, Thornhill Road, Gillespie Road and Amwell Street will reduce pollution and traffic noise for those living and working here. At the same time, it will create a truly “Quiet” route north to south through Islington. Everyone from school children to pensioners will be able to walk, scoot, and cycle here in comfort and safety.

See a map of the route here.
