Harrow Road crossing takes shape
A new crossing of the Harrow Road is now taking shape. The actual crossing, which passes under Westway, is already open to pedestrians. Although there are signals for cyclists, these may not be unveiled until the whole scheme is completed in March 2013.

The complete scheme consists of the following components:
- A new northbound contraflow for cyclists in Hermitage Street
- The new crossings of the Harrow Road, passing under Westway
- A new, straight ramp up from the Harrow Road to St Mary's Square
- Shared use of the north footway of Harrow Road by pedestrians and cyclists between the new ramp and Paddington Green. This is to avoid St Mary's Churchyard Walk, which is a bit too narrow for shared use.
