Make Stirling Corner Safer

532 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Stirling Corner roundabout has always been a potentially dangerous junction linking up an extremely busy section of the A1 with Borehamwood and Barnet. Until recently there were part time signals controlling two of the entrances onto the roundabout with signals at two points on the roundabout itself to try controlling traffic flow to improve safety. These signals only worked for 3 hours on weekday afternoons. A new supermarket has opened within the last few months which has increased the amount of traffic going through Stirling Corner roundabout. Transport For London, as a result, have decided to trial a new traffic control system to help improve the flow of traffic. In their wisdom they have decided that the lights should be turned off permanently! Not only has this made the traffic flow worse but this has INCREASED THE NUMBER OF ACCIDENTS AND STIRLING CORNER IS NOW A FATAL ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN. Another area that has been negatively affected is pedestrian traffic. As previously mentioned, the volume of road traffic has been increased and the amount of road traffic control reduced. This has heightened the danger when pedestrians try crossing the roads around this extremely busy junction. The Borehamwood Driving Instructors Association (B.D.I.A) believe that we have a solution. We fully acknowledge that this may not be perfect but it's definitely a start. 1) Lights on 24/7 2) Erect signals at Barnet Lane (Borehamwood side), A1 Southbound and exit from supermarket 3) Improve road markings which currently do not go round the entire roundabout. Please sign the petition to help us improve the road safety of the thousands of people that use this section of the A1 every day.

    I live near Apex and join this roundabout from Salvage rd to Totteridge every day on my way to work. Every single day there is a problem beeping,accidents,massive traffic. How many people have to die there before someone do something?
