You may have noticed a bunch of white x's on paving stones all over Noel Park. I caught the highways employee who was marking them as he was doing it in front of my house. Apparently, the pavers that are marked are going to be pulled up and replaced with tarmac.
When I called the council and questioned this I was told: "safety first". Surely there's a way to ensure pavements are safe to walk on without marring the pavements in this way? I walked all around Crouch End and Muswell Hill last weekend and I walk around (the Camden end) of Highgate every week and I've never seen any white x's nor patchwork paving stones with tarmac patches. Why is this ugliness reserved for Noel Park, especially since we're an article 4 conservation area?
Whats happening with this?
O dear. And am not surprised. But what makes it worse is that I doubt this would have happened in the more affluent parts of London. Is the local councillor being responsive to your efforts, with requesting some decent repair work?
