TfL has revealed plans to pedestrianise Highbury Corner

Isabelle Aron

A major revamp could be on the cards for Highbury Corner, as TfL has released big plans to pedestrianise the area to make it safer for cyclists and pedestrians.

The plans include replacing the one-way roundabout with a two-way traffic system and adding segregated cycle systems. TfL is also proposing paving over the road outside the station to create a new public area, which could involve opening up the leafy Highbury Corner arboretum to the public, as well as setting up a new café and market stalls. Lovely stuff.

But on the downside, it might not be great news if you regularly use the 277 bus to get around the area, as TfL plans to stop running this route between Highbury Corner and Dalston. Swings and (one-way) roundabouts, eh?

If you want to have your say on the plans, TfL is currently holding a consultation on the proposal until March 20.
