Answered By:

Constructing the Swiss Cottage elements of the CS11 at the same time as the 100 Avenue Road has the advantage of reducing the overall impact on the transport network. Shared temporary traffic management arrangements involving highway restrictions will enable both projects to progress simultaneously, rather than an extended period of disruption resulting from the projects being delivered sequentially.

Transport for London (TfL) coordinates over 60,000 works sites every year and this effort resulted in over 3,000 days of disruption saved in the last financial year, which benefits all road users.

Additionally, CS11 brings important safety benefits to cyclists and pedestrians in the Swiss Cottage area and TfL and I are committed to delivering these as quickly as possible.
