For some reason, Google + now thinks I'm especially interested in potentially missed posts from +Max Madonia and +mike quinn. Both are interesting guys, but really? The algorithms are doing my head in.
Had a look at the consultation on the changes to Highbury Corner and added my comments. For some reason, they are entertaining the idea that the arboretum in the middle remains closed to the public - of course it shouldn't - but here is your chance to comment.
From memory, ¼ of all traffic in the rush hour are cyclists (?), a fully segregated cycle lane with traffic signalled controlled crossings will absolutely assure the safety of cyclists there.
