Some very good news from Transport for London (TfL) – the Henlys Corner improvement scheme is going ahead as planned.
As Mike Freer said in last month’s email he’s been lobbying TfL, Government Ministers and Boris to make sure the vital work was not cancelled.
The Government’s Spending Review meant that all major projects were put on hold, but the Government have listened to the argument that transport needs to be funded to keep the private sector motoring, so to speak. Work on the notorious A1/North Circular junction should now begin early next year, taking around seven months to complete. When finished the traffic flow should be smoothed and crossing Henlys Corner will no longer be for the brave or the foolish.
