Driving restrictions will make roads around the area busy. If you can, avoid travelling around the build area during peak times (07:00-09:00 and 16:30-19:30 on weekdays and 10:00-19:00 on weekends), and allow more time for your journey.

Other works in the area

Other impacts

To find out more about planning deliveries, walking, cycling, taxis and minicabs, coaches and transport accessibility during major roadworks, see our travel advice for road users page.

Why this is happening

As part of the Road Modernisation Plan, we're working to make the centre a more pleasant and safe environment by creating a pedestrianised square. This will mean better access to shops, better cycling routes, and a space for community events in Archway.
