Traffic improvement works begin around Tottenham
Major work costing £34million to improve the road network in Tottenham has begun.
The scheme will include returning the Tottenham Hale gyratory to a two-way system, improvements to footways and a new bus station to be created by 2014.
TfL has started the work which will take two years to complete and aims to make the area more accessible for those walking and cycling.
The work is part of Mayor of London Boris Johnson’s plans to revitalise London’s streets and public spaces.
The Mayor said: “I am determined to give local people a better deal on the roads; and this scheme is designed to make Tottenham Hale an easier, safer and more attractive proposition for every road user.
“These works will support the wider regeneration of the area and help us provide a road network that is not just a relic of 1960s urban planning but one that is fit for the 21st century.”
It is hoped the restoration of the two-way system will improve the road travel network giving motorists more options when travelling through Tottenham.
Work will take place along High Road, from Seven Sisters Road to Monument Way improving footways.
TfL say work will be carried out during the next two years will be done overnight and during off-peak hours to reduce disruption to traffic and minimise impact on the local businesses.
