Less congestion for Wembley residents as new through-road opens

29 June 2021

A new connector road linking North End Road to Bridge Road has opened in Wembley Park. Designed to ease congestion, the link will prove especially useful for residents on busy Wembley Stadium event days like the ongoing Euro 2020 tournament.

It provides an alternative route across Wembley Park to access the North Circular Road and won’t be affected by Event Day road closures.

Cllr Krupa Sheth, Lead Member for Environment, said: “We opened this road ahead of the Euros coming home to Wembley and we’ve already had some great feedback to local residents. We’re incredibly proud of having the National Stadium in Brent, but it has its challenges for local people on event days with more traffic in the area. With better links and traffic flow, residents can better get stuck into the many attractions Wembley Park has to offer.”

The link was first outlined in the Wembley Area Action Plan, adopted in January 2015. Initially opened as a T junction, there are plans for the link to be controlled by traffic lights in the future.
