These highways improvement works are now complete.

The purpose of the improvements at the Cricklewood Lane/Claremont Road was to deliver additional capacity for vehicles travelling through the junction, particularly from Cricklewood Lane to the west and Claremont Road to the north. It will also help to reduce congestion and delays on the roads improving air quality and decreasing journey times.
