The cycleway linking up Finsbury Park with Pentonville Road is now complete. 

Cycleway 38 was built in two stages, with the southern part between Highbury Fields to Angel finished first, and the second section from Fieldway Crescent in Highbury up to Blackstock Road just now reaching completion. 

The route includes protected cycle tracks, new pedestrian crossings. wider footways, safer junctions and more greenery.

Drayton Park also boasts Islington’s first ever “continental-style” roundabout with new zebra crossings, widened footways, and raised tables to reduce vehicle speeds.
