Red Lion Street and Lambs Conduit Street are at the southern end of a useful and already signed north-south cycle route running from Holborn to Kings Cross and continuing via Hunter Street and Judd Street.
There is one major problem with this route, particularly at AM peak times. This was described by a correspondent as follows was identified in August 2015:
I am a member of the Hammersmith and Fulham branch of LCC but hope you don't mind me contacting you re a Camden issue? I cycle from Fulham to Grays Inn Road every day and use Red Lion Street, just south of Theobalds Road. This road is quite narrow and there are always issues with HGVs and other large vehicles trying to pass each other (it's two way). Often they mount and drive on the pavement and this morning two HGVs completely blocked the road, unable to get past each other (I got off and walked to get past). Seeing this I reached the end of my tether and wanted to ask if LCC might be able to campaign for this road to be made either one way, or to restrict HGVs, or, even better, to make it pedestrian, loading and cycling only, like Lambs Conduit Street just to the north.
As far as I can see, the this issue has not been addressed.
