Answered By: 
The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written answer provided on 22 December 2011:

This junction is not on the TLRN and Westminster City Council is leading the overall design of these improvements.

A meeting was held on the 17 October 2011 with representatives from TfL, the City of Westminster, London Borough of Brent, Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and Glenda Jackson MP, to discuss a proposal to widen the pedestrian refuge islands in the centre of the junction and introduce a right turn indicative arrow for traffic travelling south on Harrow Road. At this meeting, TfL was informed by Westminster CC that it is not pursuing pedestrian phasing at this location but opting for the pedestrian improvements described above instead.

Subject to the submission of further information from the Westminster, it is proposed that the revised pedestrian islands will be installed on a trial basis in January 2012. If this trial is a success, this will be made permanent in October 2012 along with the introduction of the right turn indicative arrow.
