Tillingbourne Gardens proposed temporary closure

Closed 7 Mar 2011

Opened 7 Feb 2011


Transport for London (TfL) and London Borough of Barnet are shortly to begin the main carriageway construction work on Henlys Corner, as part of the major improvement scheme for this junction of the A406 North Circular Road.

At present the layout of the Henlys Corner junction poses considerable difficulties for all road users. Crossing the road can be very difficult for pedestrians, particularly those with mobility impairments, and for cyclists. Motorists experience severe delays and long queues during peak hours.

The improvement scheme is designed to address these issues, providing new signalised crossing facilities for pedestrians, and smoother flowing traffic with improved journey times for motorists.

In order to construct the scheme, TfL is proposing to ban all right turns at the junction.  This will aid the safety of road users and construction workers, and maximise the number of vehicles able to flow through the junction at each green signal phase. Three clearly signed diversions will be put in place to allow traffic to navigate through the area without having to turn right at the Henlys Corner junction.

The diversions detailed below will be designed to direct traffic along main roads rather than residential streets.

Why We Are Consulting

Preventing rat running during construction is one of our key considerations. In order to prevent the use of Tillingbourne Gardens as a rat run during this period we are considering closing the road at its junction with A406 from the start of carriageway works on April 4 until completion in December 2011. 

We would very much welcome the views of Tillingbourne Gardens residents.
