Other cities have removed far greater road capacity than this one lane flyover and lived to tell the tale. The removal of a major elevated motorway in seoul is a good example (been, it's amazing now). That was achieved by reducing traffic with better public transport - something that a Bakerloo Line extension or Tram could achieve here (if that's even necessary).
Anyway, chances are this isn't going anywhere for the next four years, 'smoothing the traffic' won't allow it.
