Roadworks have started in the south of the borough as part of ‘CS1’, the upgrade to London Cycle Network route 10. Pitfield Street comes first, with the southern section closed to all but pedestrians and northbound cycle traffic. Transport for London, which is leading on the project, is providing information including a recommended diversion route for southbound cycle traffic. The work in Pitfield Street is very substantial and is due to continue until next spring. In August work will also start on another large piece of work just to the south, namely the rearrangement of the junction of Old Street, Great Eastern Street and Pitfield Street.
