Road Safety Audit - A5

Received: 4 June 2021

Please can you provide the Road Safety Audit Report for the A5 Cricklewood Broadway/Chichele Road/Cricklewood Lane Junction which has indicated that protection for pedestrians crossing Chichele Road at the junction with the A5 Cricklewood Broadway in London NW2 can be removed?

The background is that this busy signal-controlled crossroads in the middle of Cricklewood is being realigned. This work, including the changes to the signals, is being carried out by Barnet Council. Previously, pedestrians have crossed the Chichele Road exit from the crossroads safely (when the traffic lights are only green for traffic from Chichele Road and not for traffic entering it). We understand that in about September, when realignment of Cricklewood Lane is complete, the phasing of the traffic lights will be changed so that the junction operates as a simple crossroads and there will be no pedestrian lights or other safe phase for pedestrians on the west side of the Broadway.

I have asked TfL for the Road Safety Audit Report but they have stated that 'TfL does not hold the requested information as the crossing in question is not part of the Transport for London Road Network'. I have asked Brent Council for the Road Safety Audit Report but they have stated 'The A5 Cricklewood Broadway/Chichele Road/Cricklewood Lane Junction Improvement scheme is being undertaken by the London Borough of Barnet. Please redirect this FOI enquiry to themselves.'
