Belsize Road has been closed for weeks due to numerous water mains bursts. Please be aware of the closure (from Monday 13th August) of West End Lane northbound from Blackburn Road to Iverson Road. General traffic will be diverted via Quex Road, Kilburn High Road and Iverson Road. Buses will be diverted via Finchley Road. Expect higher levels of traffic for 6 weeks.

Look how lovely the Kilburn high road used to be before traffic, shop extensions, A boards and other general clutter took over…

We think the 3 different sets of lights on the High Road should be replaced by these to reduce street clutter and enhance the High Road. What do you think?
