Mike Freer secures road improvements for Childs Hill motorists.

Finchley and Golders Green MP, Mike Freer, has today welcomed plans by Transport for London (TFL) to overhaul the junction of Hendon Way and Cricklewood Lane in Childs Hill. Following a campaign by Mike Freer to upgrade the junction, TFL have announced that they are now designing a new traffic signal scheme.

Speaking today, Mike said “Obviously this is welcome news for everyone in the area. I’m delighted that the new junction will not only ease congestion, but also improve road safety”.

Currently, there is not a filter light when turning right onto Cricklewood Lane from Hendon Way (A41) when heading northbound. However, there is a filter light when heading southbound, turning right onto Cricklewood Lane. TFL’s plans will see the junction revamped so that an additional filter is installed at the junction, as well as completely new road markings. TFL hope to have the new plans in place in the spring, providing funding is approved.
