About the Highways Team & Project:
Our projects encompass motorway widening, congestion relief, safety improvement and bypass schemes. Recent work includes M62 Smart Motorways, Lincolnshire’s new A1073 bypass, the A1 Improvement scheme from Dishforth to Barton in North Yorkshire, and the M74 Completion Project through central Glasgow, Scotland’s largest infrastructure scheme. Under Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) schemes, we engage with our customers as early as possible to maximise innovation, efficiency and cost savings.
The Old Street roundabout project is the first contract led by TfL as part of their Civil Projects Framework.
The scheme will remove the existing one-way operation of the signalised Old Street roundabout to improve cycle and pedestrian facilities, reduce collisions and provide an enhanced urban realm.
The roundabout island will be removed to form a new peninsula style junction, similar to that recently constructed in 2016 at the Elephant & Castle junction in Southwark.
The Works will entail major realignment of the carriageway and significant modifications to the subways and station entrances to facilitate the widened carriageways and segregated cycle lanes.
The new formed peninsula will provide an open pedestrianized area with additional seating and retail facilities.
