Transport for London (TfL) has now completed works introducing a new cycle Quietway and improvements to Burwood Place and Harrowby Street junction along Edgware Road, which we detailed here when they began in early January.
The newly enhanced junction creates a safer crossing for pedestrians and cyclists by introducing a signalled green man crossing, crossing markings, footways and traffic islands and one way traffic at the junction, allowing traffic to turn into these roads from Edgware Road but will not be able to exit onto Edgware Road.
The works also link existing cycle Cycle Grid Quietways, forming part of a network that stretches from Bayswater to Fitzrovia. To support the cycle Quietways, we partnered with Tfl to install more cycle parking along Edgware Road. The cycle parking has been strategically placed near clusters of shops, restaurants and offices, making it easier for people to cycle to and from the area, which underpins the BID’s ongoing activities to enhance the health and safety of the area, such as improving the air quality by reducing freight and idling and increasing cycling and walking.
