Transport for London has unveiled plans to rip out roundabouts at what the city’s cycling and walking commissioner, Will Norman, describes as three of the most “intimidating junctions in the capital for pedestrians and cyclists.
The locations in question are the IMAX roundabout at the southern end of Waterloo Bridge, and the roundabouts at either end of Lambeth Bridge.
That includes the one at the northern end of Lambeth Bridge, where Moira Gemmill lost her life in 2015 when she was crushed by a tipper truck and which was named earlier this year as the most dangerous junction in Britain for cyclists.
We revealed in April that the three junctions, along with the King’s Cross Gyratory, were scheduled for improvement, with consultation planned for the summer, and now launched following today’s announcement (see here for Waterloo and here for Lambeth).
