The Old Street Roundabout

Published on Aug 16, 2023

Transport for London are working closely with Islington and Hackney Councils to make the area around Old Street station more friendly for people walking and cycling. Works are expected to be completed by early 2024.

The transformation of Old Street is a major project. TFL are modernising the station entrances and an outdated 1960s roundabout to create a much safer, more welcoming environment for everyone.

The northwest arm of the roundabout has been permanently closed to all traffic. Work is continuing to create a major new public space with better walking and cycling access to Old Street station.

Once complete, the former Old Street roundabout will have permanent, fully segregated cycle lanes alongside new pedestrian crossings to make it much easier to walk and cycle.
