Apparently,according to trade journal Estate Gazette Boris is refusing to sign off the dismantling of the the Southern Roundabout until the effects on traffic is known and this could effect the whole E&C development as the removal of the roundabout is essential for the development.

There's a good link here
Only 17% of commuters through Elephant and Castle are in private cars, and yet drivers dominate the streetscape. Pedestrians, train users and bus users have to scurry around to avoid being hit. Kulveer Ranger's decision is baffling. Boris should review it. By my calcuation TfL have had six years to "review the impact [of the scheme] on traffic". What have they been up to?

How long has this been in planning? How can the effects on traffic not be known?! Its a shambles!

I just cannot BELIEVE this...ANOTHER bloody consultation on the traffic? It's a joke!

Just to confirm that Overview & Scrutiny Committee will be getting a project update on the Elephant & Castle on 3 November. We'll be hearing from the key officers, the Executive Member for Regeneration and the Deputy Leader of the Council. I anticipate that this will be a first of many sessions on this project.

We've not finalised the areas we'll discuss but I certainly want to cover the key issues of the agreement with Lendlease, the impact of the changing economic climate on the project, the rehousing of Heygate residents and the assistance being provided to local small businesses.

We'll doubtlessly also discuss the impact of the new Mayor ie level of support for transport projects (southern roundabout and CRT) and changing policy on tall buildings which could also cause some problems for the project.

Happy to receive suggestions for other areas we should investigate.

I will make a point of trying to get to this meeting one way or another This whole project is turning into a huge joke and source of derision from all quarters.

Just out of idle curiosity did the residents of Heygate actually want their properties pulled down? When the Aylesbury is pulled down where are all the tenants going? if they can't get it right for the Heygate?

No, many of us did not want them to demolish our homes. There were no actual structual faults that required the Heygate to be demolished. I am one of the leaseholder's from the estate who applied for rehousing assistance from the council back in February 2008, and I am still to date waiting for a response.
