Answered By: 
The Mayor

Clarence Avenue is the responsibility of the London Borough of Redbridge. Any proposals regarding its closure need to be approved by Redbridge. However, under the Traffic Management Act 2004, all Highway Authorities have a duty to work with adjacent authorities to ensure the expeditious movement of traffic, including pedestrians. Also as TfL is responsible for traffic signals in London they would need to approve any signal changes.
