    Boundary Road will be made one way southbound between its junctions with Kings Road and Railway Road. Residents will have access to their properties travelling northbound

    Diversions will be in place to access properties and businesses, though on-street parking along Kings Road will be suspended.

    Boundary Road will close to northbound vehicles, with southbound traffic permitted between the Kings Road and Railway Road junctions.

    Two-way traffic will resume from Stroud Green to Railway Road for residents.

    Hambridge Road will be accessed via Mill Lane, and from its junction with the A4, though HGVs will only be allowed to use the A4 junction.
