Current Fountain roundabout condemned by Transport for London
The Greater London Authority has assessed current the Fountain Roundabout against its Healthy Streets score card and given it the thumbs down.
TfL traffic engineers find that the current roundabout is unsafe and unhealthy, which is why it cannot be left as it is. Finding the right solution is proving controversial, but it has to be addressed.
Transport For London finds that the elements that make a street good for health are generally the same as those needed to make a street good for the local economy, community and environment. So working towards delivering healthier streets reinforces a range of other goals. They have identified the ten characteristics of a healthy street in the Transport For London action plan Improving the Health of Londoners.
