Question

Considering again just the narrow subject of the Staples Corner junction of the A406 and A5, west of the Midland Main Line, do you intend that the junction will be rebuilt with a sense of place in the urban fabric, rather than just for movement?

Answered By:

As per my response to 2015/1388, the developer is required to transform the road layout at Staples Corner to provide more efficient movements, prevent traffic queues and reduce pollution. This is a condition of the Brent Cross Cricklewood Regeneration planning consent.

The design for this junction is still at the concept stage. TfL is working with the developer to influence the proposals as they evolve and to ensure that the new layout provides the additional capacity needed for the major regeneration project while providing a safe and attractive environment for pedestrians and cyclists.
