Previously looked at this in February and July this year. No new papers from TfL.
July scheme involved removing roundabout, peninsularisation from south and possibly moving the Northern Line ticket Office. Scheme lacked detail and looked over complex, with cycle space inadequate for present, let alone future, flows. Even now, at peak, cyclists outnumber all motor traffic on the main N-S route yet get almost no road space. If current trends (falling motor traffic, rising cycle traffic) continue, cyclists will outnumber motor traffic on all arms of the system.
I would welcome comments which can be made here.
Two new ideas people might like to think about. Why not make an underpass for the heavy W to E motor traffic from the A3 to New Kent Road (on the “Ring Road”). How about an elegant flyover/bridge for cyclists from the E&C Link Rd to Newington Causeway?
Those who would like more detail, can find it as follows.
From July consulation we had only the press released information:

This was big improvement on Feb scheme. Now the idea of “peninsularisation” was accepted and a realistic budget proposed.
We had already in Feb proposed “peninsularisation” – the “teardrop” solution. See my postings at http://healthyrider.weebly.com/traffic-and-junctions.html and

Only new information this October comes from the TfL cycling census, data available at http://cyclelondoncity.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/local-roads-in-london-up-to-75-of-peak.html
