TfL proposed that the N-S Cycle Superhighway should stop at Greville Street but LCC’s response to the consultation (and ours) stated that the route should continue on Farringdon Road to at least the junction with Calthorpe and Margery Street (this junction).
After the consultation TfL replied that they would explore options north of Stonecutter Street(which is actually south of Greville Street!). The N-S Cycle Superhighway may be completed by Spring 2016 but we have no date for it being extended any further north.
See consultation on TfL’s website which has a link to their junction plan. They say they plan to build it in September 2015
TfL’s proposals include the following:
On Farringdon Road – Grays Inn Road
– right turn pocket for northbound cyclistturning into Margery Street
-1.5 m advisory cycle lane on Kings Cross Road for cyclists travelling southbound with one instead of two motor lanes and on northbound carriageway north of the junction
– footway build outs
– longer ASL and low-level early release signals
– faootway build out
– widen contralow
– longer ASL box and low-level early release signals
– northbound approach on Farringdon Road no cycle space and left hook issue
– no attempt to provide protection for cyclists crossing the junction; Farringdon Road is both wide enough to put in the infrastructure needed for a separate signal stage for northbound cyclists or for HLT.
– the early release signals are only as effective as a longer ASl box, not protecting cycles that arrive during the green stage,
