After your approved Brent Cross road changes, how many current vehicles per working day will no longer be able to drive south on the A5, and turn west onto the A406 North Circular at Staples Corner? Is this a desirable change, and why is it being made?

TfL is working closely with the design consultant (URS) appointed by the Hammerson/Standard Life Investments to develop successful designs for the highway and junction layouts. These will support the Brent Cross redevelopment between now and 2031. This process is informed through the use of detailed traffic modelling and simulation. 

TfL has recently received highway designs from URS for detailed evaluation. It is too soon to estimate the traffic impacts, as the necessary traffic modelling is still under development by URS.
