The Changing Face of the Elephant & Castle

Here are a few pics just to show how things are going with the removal of the dreaded southern roundabout at the Elephant and its replacement with a light-controlled junction. The subways are going and people will be able to cross at ground level for the first time in three or four decades. Next up the northern roundabout but that’s a long way off yet.  Apologies there is no original picture of the old roundabout before its removal.

The scene on 4th October 2010 just before the roundabout was finally removed.








One of the unloved subways.



11th October - First view of the new T/Y shaped junction.



The red and white cordoning gives a good impression of how much space will (should) be returned to pedestrians as space they can use.
