Answer for Cycling traffic lights - Holloway Road

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Transport for London (TfL) has introduced the first UK cycle signals at some junctions, focusing initially on the routes of the Cycle Superhighways.

While there are no current plans to introduce cycle signals on Upper Street and Holloway Road, TfL continually reviews the best places to introduce these facilities in future, taking account of peak cycling demand and junction safety records among other factors. TfL will speak to the London Borough of Islington about this option.
