Answered By: 
The Mayor

Design of a new junction layout to improve cyclist safety is complete, and some preliminary works due to start in January were re-scheduled in order to avoid adding to the disruption of Pentonville Road caused by major gas main repairs at the Angel. The gas main works have now moved along Islington High Street so the work at the Pentonville Road/Penton Rise junction is now due to start on 2 March for completion by 21 May 2009.
