It’s all change at 06.30 on 30/6 as the High Road alongside Tesco becomes two way. The return of Tottenham High Road to two-way traffic marks the completion of the first phase of the Tottenham Hale Gyratory removal scheme.
To cut down on any confusion, the police will be on hand throughout Sunday and Monday’s rush to direct traffic.
As well as effecting drivers, the change will cause a minor alteration to the route of the 341.
Users of Seven Sisters station and local cycle and foot paths will have noticed works on the new road layout have been well under way for a few months. But what’s the plan?
Transport for London is working on removing the “one way” – that’s the entire Tottenham Hale Gyratory – and restoring all the roads to two way traffic. As TfL points out, “The current one-way system has high volumes of traffic but limited crossing points for pedestrians and cyclists. This is a barrier for many residents living in the area.”
