Highways improvement works were carried out by Conway Aecom at the Cricklewood Lane / A5 Cricklewood Broadway / Chichele Road junction. These works were part of the planning permission for the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme.

The main purpose of the improvements works was to deliver additional capacity for vehicles travelling through the junction, particularly from Cricklewood Lane to the east. The improvements included signal modernisation, footway improvements and new controlled pedestrian crossing facilities.
