Frustration grows at lack of answers on 'unsafe' Stirling Corner on border of Barnet and Borehamwood
Campaigners fighting for improved safety measures at Stirling Corner were left frustrated by a lack of answers at a public meeting last night.
Supporters turned out to the council’s offices in Elstree Way in the hope of progress on the long-running issue.
But Transport for London (TfL) was unable to send a representative, meaning questions over new cameras at the roundabout and possible speed limit reductions were left unanswered.
Long term campaigner Sue Alford arranged the discussion and explained that she is hoping to meet with TfL in the coming weeks to move closer to a solution.
Three cameras have been erected to monitor the site, where there are currently part-time traffic signals in place between 3.30pm and 5.30pm.
Campaigners are calling for permanent traffic lights to be installed in conjunction with pedestrian crossings.
It is also hoped that the current speed limit of 70mph on roads approaching the roundabout will be reduced to 50mph in order to make the junction safer.
Barnet Council leader Richard Cornelius has written to Boris Johnson about the issue.
The next public meeting on the subject will take place in July, at which TFL are expected to be present.
