Dudden Hill Lane Junction With High Road Willesden

Closed 24 Mar 2021

Opened 25 Feb 2021

Overview

The proposed scheme aims to support our programme to improve bus reliability on congested routes in the borough.

It will help reduce congestion by easing of traffic movements through the junction, helping to improve bus journey times and reduce the impact from expected increases in traffic levels.

It will also help to improve the junction’s road alignment and deliver wider benefits such as improving road safety, accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists and creating a better public realm.

Why we are consulting

The proposed changes to the junction are shown in the attached drawing and are described in detail below: -

  • Upgrade and replacing the existing signal apparatus and modifying the signal timings to improve traffic flows, reduce bus journey times and provide pedestrian phases.
  • Re-construction of both the existing traffic islands in High Road and Dudden Hill Lane to provide wider areas for pedestrians, with new tactile paving for the visually impaired.  This will include the benefit of a new staggered pedestrian facility on the arm of Dudden Hill Lane, improving pedestrian safety and comfort. 
  • New road markings on the High Road on the southeast arm to formalise two vehicle-running lanes.
  • Providing a new right-turn pocket to the centre of the junction for vehicles turning right into Dudden Hill Lane.
  • A new right-turn indicative arrow will be added to the new signal heads.
  • A new left-turn filter arrow added to signals for traffic joining from Dudden Hill Lane into High Road.
  • Renewing the pavement and resurfacing of the carriageway for the extent of the scheme.
  • New road markings and refreshing existing road markings.
  • Removal of guard-railings and redundant street furniture to declutter the public realm.
