TfL's vision for Old Street roundabout

London’s cycle safety improvements show no sign of slowing down. As soon as the consultation on the east-west cycle superhighway closes, Transport for London announced development plans to make the Old Street roundabout safer for cyclists.

TfL figures show that cyclists make up almost a third of all vehicles at the roundabout in the morning rush hour. Forty-four people were injured at the roundabout between February 2010 and January 2013, with 80 per cent of them pedestrians or cyclists.
