Answered By:

The trial at Stirling Corner has been undertaken to assess possible safety and performance benefits of using full-time instead of part-time signals.

Initial results have shown that the full-time signalisation has addressed the original request from Barnet councillors and local residents to improve the east/west access to the roundabout. However, further analysis is needed to fully measure the benefits at this location.

The initial six-month trial was extended to take account of seasonal variation and to facilitate the collection of more data. TfL teams are meeting on a regular basis to review the trial and any future long term design options for Stirling Corner.
