The Stoke Newington gyratory

If you know the Stoke Newington gyratory like I know the Stoke Newington gyratory you may wish to participate in this consultation exercise

Not that I’m holding my breath. Even if car-centric Hackney does come up with a better way for cyclists to access Stoke Newington Church Street from the southbound A10 the chances are that car-crazed TfL will veto it. Although I suppose the likeliest possibility is a multi-million pound scheme which still prizes motor vehicle traffic flow above walking and cycling. As the A10 forms part of one of the future 'Cycle Superhighways' the gyratory has to go, unless this CS is to be an even bigger farce than existing ones.
