Oxford Circus X-crossing Debuts in London

Link: Oxford Circus X-crossing Debuts in London

One of Europe’s busiest diagonal crossings has opened in central London’s Oxford Circus.

Based on crossings in Tokyo, the new design stops traffic in all directions, allowing shoppers to cross diagonally in an “X” as well as straight ahead.

The £5m junction is able to handle double the number of pedestrians and ease overcrowding at the busy intersection.

See another video of what some people think of the innovative crossing, and what the old intersection was like.
