The ‘no through road’ scheme makes no impact on my daughter’s journey.
I’m reviewing the Harmood Street ‘no through traffic’ scheme as it might affect Eléonore’s (my 31 year old daughter) use of that road. She uses it to get to her favourite supermarket just off Chalk Farm Road.
Ellie has profound and multiple learning disabilities plus unpredictable epileptic seizures. She needs two support workers with her whenever she is out and about.
Generally, Harmood Street is fine for her, whether she is in her wheelchair or walking, linking arms with her support workers.
The ‘no through road’ scheme makes no impact on her journey.
However, I did speak to a Harmood Street resident about the scheme. He accepted that fewer cars were using his road as a short cut between Prince of Wales Road and Chalk Farm Road but he criticised the signage and the street barriers.
I suggest that a community journalist who uses Harmood Street do a review of the changes to see how they might be affected.
