Works to make Edgware Road Junctions safer start at Harrow Road on 6 January 2020.
Changes to Edgware Road junctions between Marylebone Flyover and Marble Arch will reduce road danger and make it easier and safer to walk in the area for everyone who lives, works and visits here.
Transport for London have split the work into phases during which temporary changes will be made to existing crossings and the road network. Construction work will take place between 8am and 6pm, 7 days a week and aims to complete by 18 April, as follows:
- Junction of Harrow Road and Edgware Road start 6 January (to 18 April)
- Junction of Edgware Road and Seymour Street start 13 January (to 28 February)
- Junction of Edgware Road, Old Marylebone Road and Sussex Gardens start 13 January (to 15 March)
- Junction of Edgware Road, Upper Berkeley Street and Connaught Street start 27 January (to 15 March)
- Junction of Edgware Road, Chapel and Praed Street start 10 February (to 28 March)
- Junction of Edgware Road, George Street and Kendal Street start 10 February (to 28 March)
Kay Buxton, Chief Executive of Marble Arch London Business Improvement District, said: “It is exciting to see work begin on this incredibly important programme of junction improvements. The new green man crossings run the length of Edgware Road, from the Marylebone Flyover to Marble Arch. They will significantly improve pedestrian connectivity and the experience for visitors, residents, the local workforce and children on their way to school.”
“Safer pedestrian movement was identified by Marble Arch London’s business members as being one of their top priorities when the BID was established back in 2016. Since the outset, from design through to consultation, the BID has worked closely with TfL and are enormously grateful for their work and to everyone who wrote in support of the proposals. Seeing the junctions enhanced with pedestrian phases means that one of our major goals has been accomplished and we are extremely proud of this.”
This work forms part of the Mayor’s Safer Junctions project, which tackles some of the most dangerous junctions in London. View the full press release here.
