Lib Dem Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon has sent the Mayor of London over 1,000 signatures against Transport for London’s (TfL) plans to extend the red route restrictions on Holloway Road and Upper Street to Sundays. Caroline tried to present the petition at the Mayor’s Question Time on 17th December, but the Labour Chair decided to rule it out of order.
“Transport for London are planning to extend the red route restrictions to Sundays on the A1 red route with no proper consultation with local traders and residents. Local businesses are very concerned about the impact this could have on their businesses” said Caroline Pidgeon.
“I have asked the Mayor to look into this matter, particularly as I understand that TfL in their calculations are using Arsenal match day traffic figures rather than your average Sunday traffic flow” added Caroline.
Caroline received the petition from local Liberal Democrat Councillors Terry Stacy and Tracy Ismail at City Hall.
