Camden Council proposes the following measures at the junction of Plender Street and Bayham Street:
– additional raised zebra crossings on both sides of Plender Street
– and narrow Bayham Street on approach to the existing zebra crossing
– cycle hire station on carriageway in Bayham Street south of the junction.
This response to the consultation from Camden on the proposed changes to
the junction at Bayham Street/Plender Street is from Camden Cycling
Campaign, the local borough group of London Cycling Campaign (LCC). We

living or working in the borough of Camden. We consulted our members by
email on this issue and this response reflects the views of the
We are fully supportive of the plans to reduce traffic speeds and make
it easier for pedestrians to cross. We have some slight concerns about
the planned width of Bayham Street, but it appears to be about 4.5m
which should be sufficient for buses to pass cyclists.
We suggest that consideration is given to angling the cycle docking
stations so that cycles can be removed and returned without having to
stand too far into the carriageway.
