Breaking down of Major Barriers
We selected the following
A. Safe cycle crossing over Fortess Road between Raveley Street and Lady Somerset Road
See routes 1 and 7.
B. Protected Two-way Cycling in Torriano Avenue (and Camden Park Road)
See routes 1b, 1c, 7 and 10b
C. Safe cycle crossing over Agar Grove between Murray Street and the Agar-Camley link
See routes 8 and 9
D. Safe passage under the bridge on Gordon House Road
See route 3a.
Also note that although 2b used Highgate Road, a route via Grafton Road would be preferable
E. Safe crossing over Kentish Town Road between Islip Street and Holmes Road
See route 3b
G. Safe cycle crossing over Camden Road between Murray Street and Sandall Road
See routes 8 and 9
Low traffic neighbourhoods
The following roads were noted to have too much motor traffic
Bartholomew Road, Sandall Road, Gaisford Road, Leighton Road, Torriano Avenue, Wolseley Mews, Murray Street, Camley Street and Holmes Road
Issues with parking too close to a junction e.g intersection of Gaisford Road and Hammond Street
We will use these and many other examples that we hope to collect and then decide how to promote the ideas of breaking barriers with Camden Council.
