Wider pavements are now in place as Transport for London rolls out Streetspace measures on Edgware Road.
The measures introduced by the Mayor of London are designed to transform London’s roads to give space to new cycle lanes and wider pavements to aid social distancing, accommodating an expected ten-fold increase in cycling and five-fold increase in walking when lockdown restrictions are eased.
As public transport capacity is substantially reduced compared to pre-crisis levels, millions of journeys a day will need to be made by other means. TfL’s measures are in place on the section of Edgware Road between Marylebone Flyover and Seymour Street.
The Streetspace measures on Edgware Road are marked by barriers. Access to local roads is maintained. The measures are temporary and will be kept under review as advice on social distancing is updated.
