What are the proposals?


(Video giving an overview of the proposed changes)

The proposals are:

A simpler junction with direct and safer crossings:

  • Pedestrians will have straight across and wider crossing spaces replacing the two stage crossing. There will be a dedicated time for pedestrians to cross on a green walk signal at the same time, whilst all traffic is stopped at the traffic lights

  • Pedestrian countdowns at the traffic lights to improve safety and accessibility

  • Safer positioning on the road, safer turns and head starts for cyclists to make it easier for them to navigate the junction

  • Reallocating road space to pedestrian footways on the Edgware Road where traffic turns left into Sussex Gardens. This would give pedestrians more space and would feature a new rain garden. Traffic turning left would do so at the junction of Edgware Road and Sussex Gardens

  • Reallocating road space to pedestrian footways where traffic turns left from Old Marylebone Road (A501) into Edgware Road. This would give pedestrians more space and would feature large planters like those in Burwood Place. Traffic turning left would do so at the junction of Old Marylebone Road (A501) into Edgware Road

  • Planting four new ‘rain gardens’ along Edgware Road between Sussex Gardens and Kendall Road to make the area greener and more attractive

You can view the map and find more details about our proposals in the summary of changes.



Background

We want to make the junction at Sussex Gardens and Edgware Road safer, easier to cross and a more comfortable place for vulnerable road users, including pedestrians and cyclists, to travel through.

Safety is a priority for TfL and there have been 17 collisions at this junction in the three years up to 2019: seven people were seriously injured and tragically one person was killed in these collisions.

Our proposals are in line with our Vision Zero strategy, which aims to eradicate deaths and serious injuries from our roads. The proposals have been designed according to our Healthy Streets approach, which aims to make London a safer, healthier and greener place to live and travel.

Equalities Impact Assessment

Our Equality Impact Assessment (EqIA) identifies:

  • The affects these proposals could have on people
  • How we propose to minimise any negative impacts

After we’ve considered all comments, the EqIA will be reviewed and may be updated.

We use the EqIA to help us decide if, and how, we should proceed with these proposals.



Connecting with London's deaf community on our consultations

A British Sign Language video of the proposals and survey is available.

To enhance how we engage and consult with London's deaf community we are trialling a British Sign Language (BSL) consultation conversation service for this consultation. This service will allow the TfL consultation lead to have a two-way BSL translated discussion on any aspect of this consultation with a BSL speaker.

To request a BSL consultation conversation please contact us at haveyoursay@tfl.gov.uk and we will be in contact to arrange this at a convenient time. Following this trial, we will evaluate the service to determine if this is something we are able to offer on other consultations in the future.



What happens next

These proposals are subject to the outcome of our consultation. Once consultation ends on Monday 18 December 2023, we will spend time considering all the responses we receive and will prepare a consultation report.

The report will be available to everyone that takes part in the consultation and a copy will be published on our website.
