Question by John Biggs

What progress has been made to provide safe pedestrian crossings at the Bow Flyover/roundabout on the A12?

Answer by Boris Johnson (1st Term)

TfL has spent substantial effort looking at options for pedestrians crossings in this location and modelling various possible solutions. TfL have been unable so far to find an immediate solution for providing controlled at-grade pedestrian crossings at Bow Roundabout that does not push the junction over capacity and introduce significant delays to traffic. The feasibility of providing pedestrian crossings at the roundabout will continue to be investigated for the future. In the shorter term, TfL is providing on-highway facilities for cyclists at the roundabout, as part of Barclays Cycle Superhighway Route 2, and proposing to improve the urban realm in partnership with LB Tower Hamlets.
