Camden Council proposes to build a pop-up cycle lane eastbound on Prince of Wales Road, linking directly to C6 via Castlehaven and Castle Roads. The separation will be by means of flexible wands, as in Goodsway.
Bus Stops will be maintained using a combination of temporary bus stop bypasses and shared use bus boarders.
A couple of zebra crossings will be converted to Tigers (parallel cycle and pedestrian crossings).
All car parking spaces on the north side of PoW will be removed.
This Commonplace comment, requesting an eastbound cycle lane on Prince of Wales Road, was “agreed” with by 10 other individuals.
The changes will be implemented under an Experimental Traffic Order (ETO).
The work will be done in three phases, with line markings and wands being installed first followed by removal of buildouts, temporary kerbs and drainage works before finally installing traffic signal changes. Subject to approval, the scheme would commence construction from early July 2020.
