Road Access and Repairs - 1st October 2018 for 2 weeks

From Monday 1st October for approximately 2 weeks one entrance to Aberdeen Park will be closed.

The remaining entrance will be controlled by traffic lights with right turn only permitted on exiting the park. This is due to gas works on Highbury Grove, which will be closed to southbound traffic. The gate from the spur to Aberdeen Road will be open during this period.

From Tuesday 2nd until Thursday 4th October there will be essential resurfacing work on Aberdeen Park starting at the second road hump from the main entrance (outside numbers 6-10 and 7) and continuing past the Highbury Centre all the way to the road hump nearest Seaforth Crescent (outside number 35 and 44).

 

This area must be clear of all parked vehicles from 6am Tuesday 2nd October until the traffic cones are removed, please.

 Cars left in the area to be resurfaced after 8am on Tuesday 2 October may be moved

Traffic will still be able to come and go. The Gates on the spur of Aberdeen Park and Aberdeen Road will be open

 

CCTV Installation

APMC is installing CCTV in the road with the intention of reducing crime and making the road safer for residents and visitors.  There will be 6 cameras around the Park and they will be placed on lamp posts in such a way as to allow coverage of the pavements and road, but not private gardens or homes.  The installation commenced on 24th July and should be completed by the end of the week.  There will be a period of testing and then the system will go live by the end of August.  The camera footage will be recorded on to a recording device but there is no live monitoring and the footage will be accessed only when an incident occurs and an approved request is received by the Board.  APMC's CCTV policy will be made available on this website or can be obtained by request to cctv@aberdeenpark.com.

Highbury Grove - gas repairs

British Gas are undertaking major repair work on Highbury Grove over the next few weeks and there will be some disruption to our entrance/exit from Aberdeen Park.  At some point they will close the entrance on one side so that all traffic will have to go out and come in through the same side.  Unfortunately they didn't inform us in advance and they have not made any provision for controlling traffic flow from and to Highbury Grove.

In order to make access easier and safer during this period only the Board has decided to open the gates leading to Aberdeen Road so that cars can enter and exit Aberdeen Park safely.

The gates will be open from today (31st May 2017) until the gas repairs are complete.
