TfL's records indicate that three footbridges on the Transport for London Road Network have been removed since 2000 and replaced by pedestrian crossings. These were at A217 Rosehill Roundabout, the A40 Guinness site at Park Royal and A21 Bromley Polygon (The Green). There are no pedestrian fatalities recorded at any of the sites either before or after footbridge removal.
