Campaign to remove through traffic from Regents Park

A joint campaign with Camden Friends of the Earth, Canal and River Trust, Westminster Cycling Campaign, Westminster Living Streets. See the new website for this campaign

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.

Permeability Campaign

No Entry- cyclist exception

For cyclists, permeability is about being able to ride through a network of streets in the most direct manner. Unfortunately, routes are often made longer by one way streets and forbidden turns. 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).
