Question

Your predecessor promised for years that he would cycle round the Stirling Corner roundabout in Barnet to demonstrate its safety to cyclists. Needless to say he failed to do so. Will you ask TfL to look at the problem again, and propose measures that would improve safety for cyclists?

I am aware that my predecessor failed to honour his pledge to cycle round Stirling Corner with you.

I am informed that TfL is developing a protected pedestrian/cycle crossing facility for the existing traffic signals on the southern side of the roundabout. Subject to funding and approvals, work is planned to start in 2017.

TfL also inform me that a number of road safety measures have already been installed over the past few years at Stirling corner, including the reduction of the A1 speed limit from 70mph to 50mph near Apex Corner, upgraded cycle markings, and enhanced traffic signals now operating 24/7.
