Urging politicians to Ditch the Roundabout, over 200 cyclists and pedestrians took a circuit of the Archway gyratory on Thursday 1 March, organised jointly by Better Archway Forum, Islington Living Streets and ICAG. Good planning ensured some local celebs as well as local people wanting change at Archway.
