This area is a convoluted jungle of one way streets. We understand that they were originally put in to prevent kerb crawling. They certainly complicate cycle movements in the area. For example, someone trying to return a hire bike to the station at the top of Belgrove Steeet can’t get there from Argyle Street.
Camden Cyclists first approached Camden about allowing two-way cycling in some of these streets in November 2008. This idea gradually progressed to an area-based scheme in which all of the one way streets permit two-way cycling.
Following a study on vehicle speeds and movements, an outline design will appear at the end of April. All being well, this will be followed implementation should start at the end of 2011.
If this scheme is built, it should provide a useful model for further area-based schemes.
