End of update

We asked to hear your views on proposed changes to the junction of Edgware Road, Maida Vale, Blomfield Road and Aberdeen Place. The proposals are part of our Quietways programme - a London-wide network of high-quality, well-signed cycle routes predominately using back streets with lower traffic flows.  

This junction forms part of the Camden Town to Little Venice Quietway. The City of Westminster consulted on other parts of this route in July 2015.

Our proposals aimed to improve safety and to cater for the predicted increase in cycling along this route.

What we proposed

Maida Vale

  • New 1.5 metre southbound mandatory cycle lane replaces one of the three traffic lanes at the junction approach to provide dedicated space for cyclists and help them access the advanced stop line so they can wait ahead of other traffic. Mandatory cycle lanes must not be entered by other vehicles, although cyclists may still choose to cycle in the main carriageway.
     

Edgware Road

  • New 1.5 metre advisory cycle lane to provide dedicated space for cyclists. Advisory cycle lanes should not be entered by other vehicles unless unavoidable. Cyclists may still choose to cycle in the main carriageway.
     

Blomfield Road

  • Existing advanced stop line extended to 5m. This would give cyclists a larger waiting area ahead of motor traffic, improving their visibility, and allowing them to move away from the traffic lights ahead of motor traffic.
