Bowes and Bounds Connected

A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green



     Recently spoke to enfield traffic management  to see if it would be feasable to make the whittington road / palmerston road junction no entry on exit and also the bowes road north circular road palmerston road no entry no exit    and reinstate the right turn at bounds green road and whittington road, so that residents of bowes park can easily access the gordon road clinic n11 , unfortunately dr prasad passed away , and we have to register with the n11 clinic , it also makes it easier to commute to new southgate and muswell hill easier if the right turn is reopened.

i was told i would stand a better chance if i obtained the support of the residents , as this suggestion would undoubtedly help enfield with their traffic calming measures.

Numerous emails to the Haringey counterpart resulted in receiving polite patronising emails advising me that it would be considered whenever , but not immediately ,

i wonder if i can reach out to the residents especially of whittington road to support me in my efforts as it will also undoubtedly stop the speeding traffic from and to palmerston road via whittington road


looking forward to hearing your views on this matter.

Hi Bernadette

This would be wonderful for residents of Whittington Road but what about the rest of the area who would have to deal with the traffic pushed away from Whittington Road?

I already have to suffer heavy traffic at peak times and this would only increase greatly with your suggested changes.

Your suggestion would force more traffic onto Truro Road and equally onto Thorold Road and Myddleton Road.

I don't know your circumstances but if I had to attend Gordon Road clinic I would walk there from Whittington Road but I am able bodied and don't have young children to consider.

Sorry I can't support your suggestioned changes


hi Peter

Nobody seemed to care about the impact of the residents of  truro road .clarence road and imperial road ,etc when the no right turn was introduced at the top of whittington road as this required drivers to make u turns on these roads in order to turn right.t the builder centre , brownlow road etc.

 i only used the gordon road clinic as an opportunity to highlight rhis injusice., needless to say with zero success , t

why would the traffic increase om myddleton road and truro road,  , there was no such concern for these roads when the right turn was introduced *, 

By the way  are you a car  driver
