Next steps: Bloomsbury Cell
Reducing rat running in Bloomsbury
The term rat-running is used to refer to drivers using secondary roads or residential side streets instead of nearby main roads when crossing an area such as the eastern section of Bloomsbury. They may choose to do so to avoid traffic signals or congestion on main roads, for example, in our case, Euston Road. (Driving to an address in the area or starting a journey from an address within the area is not described as rat running). In order to discuss the problems around Judd Street and Hunter Street we need an enclosing cell and I have chosen one with Guilford Street as the southern boundary although ideally, this might be further south.
