Caroline Pidgeon AM joined local Lib Dem Councillors and campaigners in Haringey on Friday 5th July to look at a number of transport issues in the Borough.
Harringay Green Lanes Station
Caroline met with Cllr Schmitz and others to look at the issues at this station, in particular the Gospel Oak to Barking Line’s closeness to houses on Lothair Road. Caroline heard about ongoing work to try to resolve some of the noise issues which come from Goods trains and others in the early hours on this line and have potentially caused structural damage to homes, as well as excessive lighting at night at the station.
“Given that this line will now be electrified there is clearly going to be a lot of further work over the next few years and ultimately there could be more trains on this line. I have therefore asked Network Rail to consider the idea of a noise barrier – something I helped with at a different Underground station in Kensington, as well as seeking clarification on what works are planned to try to resolve these noise and vibration issues” commented Caroline.
