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.
