People-friendly streets in Canonbury West

Canonbury West, like many neighbourhoods within the borough, has suffered from increased traffic volumes in recent years from the use of the area as a short-cut. 

  • We have installed four traffic filters in Canonbury West.

  • All four traffic filters installed in Canonbury West will be enforced by cameras, allowing access for emergency services.

  • The traffic filters are located at Canonbury Place, Alwyne Road, Clephane Road and Ramsey Walk.

  • This will stop non-local cars driving through your area but cycles and emergency vehicles will be able to get through. If you have a car you will still be able to drive and park near to your home, as will visitors, but you may need to take a different route.

We have now published our pre-consultation monitoring report for the Canonbury West PFS trial area. This report includes data one year on from the launch of the people-friendly streets trial in November 2020. 

You can still access the interim monitoring report for the Canonbury West PFS trial area, published in October 2021. 


The Canonbury West consultation is now closed. Thank you to everyone who provided their feedback.
