The Better Junctions programme has been refocused to tackle 33 of the worst performing junctions and gyratories across London. However, TfL will also make improvements at other key junctions across London through other infrastructure programmes, including new and improved Cycle Superhighways, Major Projects, and the annual TLRN Regional Improvement Programme.

TfL remains fully committed to reviewing and making appropriate improvements at all of the original 100 Better Junctions locations, and funding has been allocated within the TfL Business Plan for this work. For example, all of the locations listed in this question will be looked at as part of the upgrade of the existing Barclays Cycle Superhighways.
