Question

The junction of Tower Bridge Road and Queen Elizabeth Street has been highlighted by local campaigners as unsafe for both cyclists and pedestrians. I understand that TfL is looking at options for improving the junction, but there are no firm proposals or a timescale. Will you instruct TfL to bring forward proposals for this junction and to set a firm timescale?

TfL proposes to improve the junction of Tower Bridge Road and Queen Elizabeth Street as part of the Central London Cycle Grid Programme. These improvements are expected to happen post 2016. TfL is not able to provide a firm implementation timescale due to the ongoing Network Rail works at London Bridge Station. This includes the eastbound closure of part of Tooley Street from 2016 for a period of approximately 18 months.
