Question

I have received reports from constituents of a high number of vehicles u-turning on Junction Road since the right turn to Archway Road northbound has been curtailed from St John's Way. Is Transport for London (TfL) monitoring the situation and if so what are its findings? If not, will TfL commit to monitoring this?

When a scheme the size of Archway is implemented, it can take a number of months before traffic patterns and road user behaviours are established. Once the scheme has bedded in, TfL will monitor traffic movements to ensure the layout is operating as intended.

Following the introduction of two-way traffic at Archway, TfL's traffic enforcement officers were on site to ensure the new road layout was being used safely. TfL will ensure traffic movements on Junction Road are considered as part of the ongoing safety audit process and will make any changes as needed.
