HertsCC proposal to create a junction speed table and zebra crossing at the junction of Avenue Road and Lemsford Road. The proposed zebra crossing will be north of the junction. The proposal is part of the Maple School Safer Routes to School project.
This junction is on the route of the Green Ring, where it crosses the railway using the bridge from Jennings Road.
The Avenue Road - Jennings Road link is used by many pedestrians and cyclists going to and from: St Peters Street / Carlisle Avenue (ie NCN6); Morrisons & the Alban Way (ie Green Ring); Verulam School (secondary); High School for Girls (secondary) and Maple School (primary). For cycling the route is great for avoiding Sandpit Lane.
The desire for cycling is that the raised table will provide easier access to the link and make the junction safer for cycling.
