Question

Will you ask TfL to review the roundabout at Canons Corner, where the road to the M1 goes from Edgware on the A41 where 4 lanes of traffic are being forced into one lane for 1/4 mile - causing tremendous traffic blockages at  spur road roundabout/Stanmore station road especially when there is an event  at Wembley Stadium. There is enough room at the roundabout for a separate lane for London traffic only to bypass the hold-up, making it far easier to get to Edgware/ central London. Can action be taken to ameliorate this problem, and if not why not?

The roads to which you refer are not part of the TfL Road Network which I control. They are instead owned and managed by the London Borough of Harrow and London Borough of Barnet. 

Accordingly, it is for the two boroughs to consider what improvements are appropriate to help reduce congestion and achieve other objectives. 

That said TfL, through the LIPs programme, is funding a feasibility study led by the London Borough of Harrow looking at these issues, which is due to report in March 2014.   The results of the study will be shared with the London Borough of Barnet and TfL to inform what improvements could potentially be taken forward in 2014/15 and beyond.
