About the scheme

The improvements, which include removing the roundabout, creating a two-way traffic system and introducing segregated cycle lanes, are designed to make walking and cycling in the area safer and more convenient.

Working closely with the Islington Council, we will create a new public space and larger station square by closing the western arm of the roundabout and improving access to the arboretum, while protecting existing trees.

More information is on the Highbury Corner roundabout project page
