Highbury corner map

TfL and Islington Council are proposing to transform Highbury Corner by changing the one-way roundabout into a two-way traffic system. The proposed closure of the western side of the roundabout together with a larger station square would create a new public space.

Road layout changes

  • removal of the one-way system
  • closure of the western side of the roundabout
  • improved pedestrian facilities
  • new cycling facilities

Other changes

  • changes to traffic movements
  • some local road closures
  • loading and disabled parking changes, and taxi rank provision
  • changes to trees

Bus service changes

  • withdrawal of route 277 between Highbury Corner and Dalston
  • additional buses on route 30

Options for a new public space

The proposals would change the way in which people currently use and travel through the area, and TfL and Islington Council would like to hear your views on them.
