Ravenstone Street closed to traffic - Ritherdon Road to get the squeeze?

This is probably a good idea for Ravenstone School but it'll have a big knock-on effect for Ritherdon Road

The scheme will see through traffic deterred from accessing Oakmead Road and Ravenstone Street. A barrier will prevent motor vehicles using these two residential roads as a cut through between Balham High Road and Bedford Hill.
The barrier will be installed in Oakmead Road close to its junction with Bedford Hill. From Monday it will be fully accessible by cyclists but not cars and vans – and a turning space will be provided for car drivers who fail to see the associated traffic signs and inadvertently find their route blocked. This ensures they won’t have to reverse back along Oakmead Road putting other road users and pedestrians at risk.
