Finchley Road - Canfield Gardens to Blackburn Road

Closes 31 Dec 2020

Opened 1 Jul 2020


In late May 2020 we made the following temporary changes here:  

  • Extended the pavement to provide extra space for pedestrians, so that people can practice safe social distancing
  • Reduced general traffic to a single lane, with the bus lane retained
  • Temporarily suspended a coach bay and some disabled parking, with loading retained. The coach service using this stop is using an alternative stop  

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.
