Ambitious plans were released for consultation this week which show that another gyratory system in London will be removed, and segregated cycle route introduced.

The scheme, proposed by Transport for London (TfL) and Islington Council, will see Archway's four lane gyratory replaced with two way traffic lanes on three sides, the fourth side closed to traffic, creating a new public space and two-way cycle route outside the tube station.
