• This is quite spectacular, a three-month closure (to through motor traffic) of the A1 Holloway Road for bridge works:


    Expect local rat-running but also a good deal of motor traffic evaporation. As with Wightman Road, I hope they do some monitoring. The situation is different than with Wightman Road, of course, as that's a secondary alignment to Green Lanes, and also roughly parallel, whereas Holloway Road is the primary alignment and no comparable secondary alignment exists.

    I'd expect that cycling and walking will still be allowed across the bridge, except perhaps for a short period.

    It could also take longer than expected, as bridge work is complex and can throw up all sorts of surprises.
