Pop-Up Cycle Network
Following decisions on 22nd and 25th June, two new pop-up cycle lanes are well under way
Prince of Wales Road eastbound
To match the westbound scheme currently under construction, the cycle lanes will run from the junction with Haverstock Hill to the junction with Grafton Road.
This has involved the removal of 46 parking spaces and by 8th July mandatory lanes had been marked with white lines and a few days later the bollards were added. It was good to see so much space for cycling claimed so quickly (photo 1) but people did wonder why the build-outs hadn’t been cut back (Photo2).
York Way Phase 1 from Wharfedale Road to Freight Lane
White line painting started early in July on the Camden side and bollards were added by 23rd July. Work on the Islington side is to follow. The bus stops will be implemented as SUBBs.
Chalk Farm Road Pop-Up Cycle Lanes & Ferdinand Street junction improvement
On 14th July, Camden Council published a decision to build pop-up cycle lanes on Chalk Farm Road between the junctions of Castlehaven Road and Prince of Wales Road and to improve the junction at Ferdinand Street.
Work is expected to start in late July.
TfL Pop-Up cycle Lanes
Harrington Square and Oakley Square
Wide tracks with bollards. Left turn at Eversholt Street banned to avert left hooks, but we have heard reports that it is being ignored.
Wide tracks both ways. Mainly bollarded. But no improvements at Euston Circus. People intending to travel east on Euston Road are directed via Drummond Street and North Gower Street.
Wide eastbound lanes with bollards between Gower Street and Ossulston Street. A very useful eastbound route – the next parallel route is at Mornington Crescent on the north side and at Tavistock Place on the south.
Westbound plans have been announced but we are concerned about how it will link to other routes..
Low traffic neighbourhoods
New point closures in Red Lion Street, Dane Street and Prowse Place were completed by 3rd July.
Seven Dials Low-traffic neighbourhood announced on 10th July
This will include timed closures to motor traffic on the roads around Seven Dials: Monmouth Street (full closure), Neal Street, Earlham Street Mercer Street. Work to be carried out from July to September.
Healthy School Streets
Three new Healthy School Streets announced in Princess Road, Cliff Villas and Minster Road to be implemented in September.
