1. Information

Islington Council is seeking your views on proposals to improve the streetscape as well as improve traffic management by changing the current one-way traffic flow system at Caledonian Road between Killick Street and Caledonia Street into a two-way system.

The main elements of the scheme are:

Two-way traffic flow operation Caledonian Road

• One-way southbound section between Killick Street and Caledonia Street to be converted into a two-way system. The lane on the west side of Caledonian Road will become the northbound lane. The existing central southbound lane and bus lane will remain as existing southbound connection. The two current signalised pedestrian crossings along this section will be amended to reflect this change in operation.

Junction improvements at the Caledonian Road/Wharfdale Road/Killick Street south

• The current traffic island and combined pedestrian and cycle crossing will be removed
• Central pedestrian refuge islands will be introduced on the north and south approaches (Caledonian Road) to the junction
• Pedestrian crossings will be provided on all approaches
• Kerbs either side of Wharfdale to be built out
• Advanced cycle stop lines also provided at the junction on Wharfdale Road and Caledonian Road to improve safety for cyclists.
• Cycle lane guidance markings to guide cyclists through the junction from Wharfdale Road into Killick Street (south) on the new traffic island
• Amendment to the entry treatment at the junction of Caledonian Road/Killick Street north by widening the footway to reduce the crossing distance for pedestrians
• Loss of the equivalent of one parking space on Killick Street north to accommodate the footway widening at the Caledonian Road/Killick Street junction

Kerb buildout on the southwestern corner of Caledonian Road/Caledonia Street junction to provide delineation for southbound vehicles
