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

We're working to make Archway town 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.
