In the last 36 months there have been three slight collisions at this junction, and given this low level of collisions, changes at this location would not be justified on casualty reduction grounds. However, TfL has been investigating the junction in recent years as an opportunity to improve the pedestrian environment and urban realm in the area. TfL has investigated simplifying the crossing on Tufnell Park Road and the possible removal of the left turn slip road to Holloway Road. These options are being discussed with the London Borough of Islington.

Current funding constraints mean that progressing the proposals to implementation will not be possible in the short term. The current plan is to agree a technically achievable and costed design that could be delivered in the future should funding become available. If this scheme is a local priority, TfL is more than happy to discuss use of Islington's LIP funding to progress the scheme.
