The roundabout at Staples Corner is too small to accommodate future traffic demand including that expected from the Brent Cross Cricklewood Development. As a consequence, the developer is funding the necessary capacity enhancement of this junction. It is proposed to replace the Brent Cross gyratory with a completely new road layout that, together with a new layout for the M1 Junction, will provide more efficient movement of traffic, and will reduce queues and pollution.
