Dangerous junctions for cyclists to be ripped out and replaced in London

Capital's road junctions that pose a threat to cyclists will be completely overhauled to make them safer in a £300m programme

Bow Roundabout 2012

Thirty three of London's most dangerous junctions for cyclists and pedestrians, including its worst gyratories, will be ripped out and replaced with safer designs, it was announced today.

Among the '60's relics' to be tackled as part of the Mayor's cycling vision are the gyratories at the notorious Elephant and Castle roundabout, with London's highest cycle casualty rate, as well as Bow Roundabout, Kings Cross, Archway, Swiss Cottage and Wandsworth. Vauxhall and Hammersmith gyratories are among those to be replaced with two way roads, segregated cycle tracks and new public spaces.
