TfL has reviewed initial options for upgrading pedestrian facilities along Edgware Road and is now developing these further and assessing their impacts to produce a proposal for public consultation.

TfL also recently consulted on changes to the junction with Harrowby Street as part of Westminster City Council's set of Quietway cycle routes. In response to feedback, TfL has amended the design to provide new straight-across (rather than staggered) pedestrian crossings. Final discussions with stakeholders are continuing and TfL anticipates that the changes will be implemented by the spring.
