Canonbury West – Low Traffic Neighbourhood

Canonbury West, like many neighbourhoods within the borough, has suffered from increased traffic volumes in recent years from the use of the area as a short-cut.

  • We have installed four traffic filters in Canonbury West.
  • All four traffic filters installed in Canonbury West will be enforced by cameras, allowing access for emergency services.
  • The traffic filters are located at Canonbury Place, Alwyne Road, Clephane Road and Ramsey Walk.
  • This will stop non-local cars driving through your area but cycles and emergency vehicles will be able to get through. If you have a car you will still be able to drive and park near to your home, as will visitors, but you may need to take a different route.

The Canonbury West people-friendly streets (PFS) trial, is having the intended impacts in the area of reducing motorised traffic across internal roads, reducing motorised traffic overall across internal and boundary roads, increasing levels of cycling on some internal roads, and reducing levels of speeding on internal roads, while air quality has improved in line with borough trends.
