High Street, Barnet Pedestrian Improvements - Statutory Consultation
The revised scheme (largely funded by TfL) incorporates the following measures:
- Removing much of the parking along the western side of the High street, and widening the pedestrian footway to provide a safer and more enjoyable shopping experience.
- Upgrade of existing pedestrian crossings, with the added advantage of a shorter crossing width. This should reduce queueing times at the crossing.
- Proposed new ‘at any time’ waiting restrictions on the High Street, as indicated on the attached plan.
- Proposed new loading restrictions on the High Street and at the junctions of High Street with Union Street and Salisbury Road.
- Introduction of trees, where physically possible, to both improve the look of the area and have a beneficial effect on the air quality.
- Introduction of cycle stands to promote sustainable transport and provide secure cycling parking.
- New benches are proposed to encourage people to stop in the area and enjoy the ambience of the rejuvenated High Street. New bins are also proposed to promote a litter-free High Street.
