Are you satisfied that technical expertise exists in UK engineering companies to build all the planned highway bridges over the North Circular Road in-situ, rather than elsewhere and then pushing them across? Are you content with building them all in-situ?

If not, what are your technical reasons to favour building one or more bridge to the south of the North Circular Road, rather than to the north? In choosing between the south or the north for a bridge-building site, what effect would each have on the Brent Cross Phase One number of London homes?

Brent Cross Phase One, which includes the highways infrastructure, is still at the concept design stage. The delivery strategy and construction methodologies are currently being prepared by the developer for agreement with the highway authorities.

In developing this project, TfL will ensure that the construction methodologies used to construct new bridges are safe, minimise the impact on traffic, local residents and businesses, and, comply with the Traffic Management Act and New Roads and Street Works Act. No loss of homes is anticipated as a result of temporary bridge-building sites.
