Question

Do you support the building of certain new minor access roads under Phase One of the Brent Cross development, to allow for the expansion of the shopping centre there? Will they have proper segregated cycle lanes, particularly given the expected lack of safe through-routes for casual cyclists through the site?

The road layouts in Phase One of the Brent Cross Cricklewood development include changes to the local road network to improve access into the new shopping centre.

The general parameters for the development have been fixed as part of the outline planning permission recently granted by Barnet Council. TfL and the GLA are actively working with both the Council and the development partners to maximise opportunities for safe walking and cycling in the detailed design, with a particular focus on links between Brent Cross and the wider area. 

My response to MQ 1379 / 2014 gives more detail on proposed through routes for cyclists.
