Part of the Brent Cross Cricklewood package of works taken on by Barnet also includes highways and transport improvements. This will deliver much needed works to local roads and junctions in partnership with Transport for London, Barnet Council and the Highways Agency.
When Hammerson and Aberdeen Standard Investments announced in July 2018 that they were pausing the shopping centre development, the council’s top priority was to ensure this didn’t delay the delivery of the new homes and infrastructure to the south. This meant amending the delivery strategy and funding arrangements for the new station, and proposing revisions to the phasing set out in the planning consent which was based on the shopping centre coming forward first.
Detailed traffic management plans have now been developed to undertake the improvement works in a way that will minimise disruption to the travelling public and local businesses.
