Freedom of Information Request

East Finchley N2 Road safety

I'm writing to inform you that yet again the traffic lights outside Dominos Pizza at the junction of High rd East Finchley N2 and Fortis Green rd have been hit and damaged by traffic turning into Fortis Green rd, in addition the pavement kerb is damaged as usual (please see attached picture).
I hope Barnet council are aware that this is a very regular occurrence.

I've lost count of how often this has happened over the years. I would like to formally request, under the Freedom of Information Act, data showing the amount of times repairs have had to be carried out to the traffic lights and the nearby pavement kerb.

Apart from the considerable costs to the taxpayer I am extremely concerned about pedestrian safety at this location. It's quite alarming when trying to cross the road at this point when large vehicles turn and mount the pavement which is quite narrow. On many occasions I've seen parents pull their children back to avoid being hit, pedestrians with prams being particularly vulnerable.
This is a very busy pedestrian crossing, surely it's only a matter of time before this adds to the already appalling list of pedestrian accidents in East Finchley.
