Closes 31 Dec 2020

Opened 1 Jul 2020


In June 2020 we made the following temporary changes: 

  • Widened the footways between Angel station on Islington High Street and the Royal Bank of Scotland to provide pedestrians, bus and tube passengers with additional space to safely maintain social distancing around the area
  • Reallocated a single lane of traffic on the carriageway and installed barriers to give pedestrians more space
  • Introduced traffic lane changes on Upper Street from Liverpool Road to The York to accommodate the scheme 

Although we are not undertaking a formal consultation on any Streetspace schemes, we would like to know about your experiences of them. If you have any comments about the effects of our scheme, or suggestions for changes or improvements we might make, please let us know at: 

We will continue to monitor the effects of these temporary changes over the coming months. This includes their effects on traffic flow, road safety and cycling and walking rates. We have written to local people, businesses and other stakeholders to explain what changes we have made and encouraged them to provide us their views and experiences of the changes. We will listen carefully to the feedback we receive.
