Edgware Road
Edgware Road

Transport for London is proposing changes to junctions along Edgware Road, between the Marylebone Flyover and Marble Arch, to improve safety for pedestrians, and other road users. The proposals include:

  • Creating new pedestrian crossings, with green and red man signals
  • Adding count down timers to new and existing crossings
  • Creating more space for pedestrians on the pavement
  • Limiting speed for vehicles to 20 miles per hour
  • Providing new Advanced Stop Lines (cycle boxes) for cyclists

In some areas, pedestrians cannot safely cross the road at all, at others, the existing pedestrian crossings do not have green and red man signals indicating when it is safe to cross.

The need for new and improved crossings is particularly important as there are four nurseries, two primary schools and three secondary schools within two minutes’ walk. Large numbers of parents and children travel to and from these destinations by using Edgware Road and its side street crossings.

Improvements to five key junctions

TfL plan to improve, replace or create new crossings at five junctions along Edgware Road. All new pedestrian crossings will include Pedestrian Countdown facilities and green and red man signals, to give pedestrians more information when crossing Edgware Road and its side streets. The junctions are:

  • The Chapel Street/Praed Street Junction
  • Sussex Gardens/Old Marylebone Junction
  • Kendal Street/George Street Junction
  • Connaught Street/Upper Berkeley Street Junction
  • Seymour Street Junction
