The name Clerkenwell Boulevard was cooned by Andrea Casalotti to refer to the GRID alignment from Old Street to Bloomsbury Way. In Camden it follows Clerkenwell Road and Theobalds Road (which is very popular with cyclists: comprising 64% of traffic at AM peak).
Report on talk by Andrea Casalotti to Camden Cyclists on January 2014. Clerkenwell Boulevard
We were asked to talk to Camden Officers about our ideas for the route. See the PPT presentation (Feb 2014). They were taken by the idea that on most of the route there is enough space for buses and cyclists and some over for improving the street scene (e.g. tables, chairs, plants, trees).
We also gave a presentation to the Holborn and Covent Garden Area Action Group. See PPT presentation (Mar 2014).
Summer 2014: development of ideas with Camden Council on a vision to improve the Holborn area for walkers and cyclists with lower volumes of private motor traffic. Our ideal is that all main roads should provide 2m-wide with-flow cycle lanes on both sides of a road and two 3m-wide motor traffic lanes; normal junctions to consist of a pair of such roads meeting at right angles without any extra branches, lanes or islands – straight-over pedestrian crossings on all arms.
Spring 2015: initial discussions as to how this will fit into the wide-area Holborn study.
