TfL recognises the continuing local desire for enhanced pedestrian facilities at this junction.

Detailed work has been undertaken but the options developed so far have all raised serious concerns about the impact on traffic movement and congestion in an area where extensive queuing and delays already occur. To mitigate this and progress towards a viable scheme, TfL has been forced to consider more radical options to mitigate adverse traffic impacts. This includes looking at solutions that involve diverting a local bus route and banning some existing turning movements. TfL expect this work to be complete by the end of this calendar year.
