Answer for Brent Cross / Cricklewood Development.

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The proposals for the regeneration of Brent Cross and Cricklewood include significant retail and residential developments. A core element of the assessment of this planning application will be to ensure that the strategic and local road networks and new developments include good provision for pedestrians and cyclists. The outline proposals which have been put forward by the developers include two new bridges across the A406, one of which is a replacement of the existing Templehoff Bridge adjacent to the Shopping Centre and the other is a new pedestrian / cycle only bridge further to the east. TfL is working with the developers and the borough officers on the design and scope of these bridges and cycle and pedestrian access across them will be a key consideration. At Staples Corner TfL is looking at how cyclists and pedestrians can be integrated into junction designs that are being considered as part of the development proposals.
