In your answer to Question 1132/2006 regarding the Stoke Newington Gyratory situated in my constituency of Hackney, you confirmed a feasibility study into the removal of the one way gyratory would have started last summer. Will you share the findings as TfL embark on a new investigation into the reversion of the Stoke Newington gyratory to two-way operation?

Yes. The initial part of the feasibility study was a Pedestrian Environment Review System (PERS) audit of the gyratory. This was undertaken last year and copies can be made available. I have asked TfL to provide you with a copy.The results of this audit have provided valuable information that has previously been anecdotal, but is now quantified in a recognised way. This is essential information because any scheme will be heavily dependant on its softer attributes as removal of the gyratory is likely to have a significant impact on traffic.
