Campaign for Clerkenwell Boulevard
Following the talk by Andrea Casalotti, there has been some interest from both councillors and officers. See the presentation to officers (PPT), and also see the presentation to the Holborn and Covent Garden Area Action Group (PPT large file)
Campaign to remove through traffic from Regents Park
Campaign to upgrade the route through Tavistock Place
This campaign will be launched on 27th August with a campaigning video that we have made. The video shows interactions between cyclists, between cyclists and pedestrians and between cyclists and motor vehicles. These show the risks for cyclists of colliding with other cyclists, problems encountered by pedestrians crossing the track and also 'near misses' with motor vehicles at intersections.

The No Entry sign left, with an cycle exception sub-plate was eventually approved by DfT. This one in Princess Road was the first to be spotted in Camden (April 2011).
