For the last year Torrington Place and Tavistock Place have had segregated cycle tracks on both sides of the street. This consultation is about making the current trial arrangement permanent. The current lightly segregated tracks would mostly become stepped tracks and there would be other improvements to junctions as well as increased space for pedestrians. There is a lot of local support but also significant opposition, mostly from residents of Judd and other streets where motor traffic volumes have increased. We think this can be corrected by the (separate) proposed changes to Judd Street and at Brunswick Square.
It’s important that all cyclists and others in favour respond directly using the details in the box above. Otherwise we are in danger of losing this flagship facility. You don’t have to live in Camden but you do need to provide an address and postcode.
More background is here.
Full details on the trial with data on its effects on traffic counts, air quality together with the proposed final form of the scheme are on Camden’s website here.
