Shoreditch kind of reminds certain parts of Toronto.

Looks like clutter and traffic islands are staying. Not to mention yellow lines will immediately be added and road dug up.

What do you mean exactly by "clutter" in this example, El Greco?

I can see traffic lights and road markings. I'm glad that these things are staying, because as i'm sure you'll agree it's not particularly nice to see people involved in tragic road accidents.

As for yellow lines, yes at a pivotal Central London junction such as Holborn Circus it is important to have parking restrictions so that the junction does not become blocked and cause humongous tailbacks of traffic.

The success of remodeling Holborn Circus will have to be properly judged when it is finished. But hopefully it can improve on what is already a quite difficult and often dangerous junction (technically up to now it's actually been more of a roundabout). The remodeling looks like it will simplify the junction by removing the roundabout, improving sight-lines for traffic, making Hatton Garden one-way, and at the same time increasing pedestrian space. Hopefully it works out but you do wonder why they didn't consider something resembling more of a Dutch-style junction, as make no mistake this new design does not look that much safer for cyclists & personally that is my only criticism so far.

Yeah...maybe they should install some grotty railings too! How come elsewhere they manage to do without traffic lights overload, yellow lines and traffic islands?

Whats the point of the traffic islands anyways? Streets are narrow enough to be crossed in one go, all it does is increase clutter which ruins the streetscape.
