Question

Will your proposed Brent Cross gyratory (the junction of the A5, A406 and M1) meet the objectives of an improved streetscape environment and air quality, rather than any increase in traffic capacity and if this is not the case what will it achieve instead and do you think that this will be desirable? Are there published aims and metrics against which the impact of the completed scheme can be measured in the future?

Proposed changes to the junction of the A5, A406 and M1 were agreed as part of the planning application for the Brent Cross Cricklewood development. TfL is working with the developer (Hammerson and Standard Life) to design the streetscape environment to meet the obligations established in the planning conditions. Air quality and other environmental factors were considered as part of the planning process - see my response to your earlier question for more information:

These road improvements achieve the increase in capacity necessary to support the Brent Cross Cricklewood development, which includes a new community with 7,500 new homes plus schools, community and health facilities.

The Section 106 Planning Agreement sets out benchmarks against which the impact of the completed phases of the development can be measured.
