Main works on Henlys Corner to begin in April 2011
The scheme, being carried out by Transport for London (TfL), will provide much-needed and long anticipated improvement to the busy junction.
Right turns, which currently cause significant queues on the local roads, will also be upgraded, allowing cars to move forward and queue in a central area of the junction.
This will increase the number of vehicles that can pass through the junction, helping to smooth traffic flow through the area.
New signal controlled crossings will also be installed, making crossing the road easier for pedestrians and cyclists.
Lane restrictions and temporary traffic management will be put in place to ensure traffic can continue to travel throughout the area while these works are carried out.
The Mayor of London has prioritised the scheme because of the broad range of benefits for pedestrians, cyclists, traffic flow and improving the public realm.
See the public exhibition for more information
