Very dangerous junction for cyclists

Reported via mobile in the Pothole category anonymously at 21:33, Thursday 21 April 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3474305.

I want to make TFL aware of the dangerous junction at the A201 Farringdon Road where it meets Rosebery Avenue. In particular it is dangerous for cyclists For information I don’t reside in Islington, but I work in Islington (police officer working at Islington Police Station) and commute by bicycle across this junction every weekday. The junction is dangerous for cyclists for several reasons: 1) lack of bicycle boxes to allow cyclists to set off before other traffic. These are provided across London at most major junctions. I don’t know why is not provided here especially as it is an uphill start on both sides of the junction which means motor vehicles are very fast compared to bicycles 2) The currently terrible road surface in the middle of the junction with large cracks and holes which can cause a cyclist to fall off in the middle of the junction 3) Poor signage in the junction for people turning right from any direction which often causes confusion/ road users getting angry As I mentioned I cycle across London every day from Peckham to Angel Islington and this is genuinely the most dangerous junction that I have to use. It is a shame because the cycling route CS6 which goes up the A201 from Blackfriars Bridge to the junction with Clerkenwell Road is excellent. For some reason it just disappears before it hits Rosebery Avenue Please could you address this I am aware that the A201 is in Islington Council so if I have also contacted them with the same information Many thanks
