I've just discovered there's a traffic consultation for the whole of the Green Lanes area currently occurring and they are seriously considering either fully closing Wightman Road permanently or making it one-way permanently. In the consultation documentation it even states that they are "unaware" of the traffic problems that may have occurred during the last closure in surrounding areas (which does appear to be a horrendous shirking of responsibility). The consolation itself looks huge, but just head to the Wightman Road pages (don't bother commenting on the others unless you're interested). And the consultation is finishing this weekend -Sunday 14th May.
The closure of Wightman Road caused massive traffic issues through Stroud Green last time, and also created havoc down on Green Lanes, leading to some bus journeys taking upto 15 mins longer. Feels like this benefits only the very few, IMHO.
Anyhow, please do add into the consultation belowhttp://www.haringey.gov.uk/transport/green-lanes-area-transport-study
