Archway Gyratory Needs to Go The Archway gyratory has been causing problems for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians ever since it was built. It’s time for it to go. Mayor and Cat Event People turned out in their hundreds for this event to demand the return of the road to traditional two-way flow, reducing accidents for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles. The Problems Traffic spreads across the centre of Archway like water across a river delta, leaving pedestrians to pick their way across first one flow, then another, then another. This means that although Archway is regenerating, it can’t function properly as a centre. Cut off on two sides, it is left on the edge of traffic which, like a powerful river, has caused serious erosion all round it. The layout is bad for drivers too. The multiple traffic lights interrupt the flow but in spite of these controls, there are frequent collisions where St John’s Way and Junction Road meet, as well as rush hour gridlock on St John’s Way southbound. Life is even worse for cyclists - so bad that the team visiting to assess the cycle superhighway route all dismounted rather than cycle here.
