Camden published the plans here. Our map shows the locations of the six filters, five of which are reducing through traffic across the green area. Buck Street is separate from the Arlington Road area.
We show photos of five of the filters (the sixth one was damaged when we were on site). They have been in place for about three weeks with the ANPR camera on the Mornington Street filter arriving last week.
We hear that the scheme is working reasonably well although some vandals have blacked out the signs at the Mornington Street filter – but Camden soon replaced them.
We heard that the filter on Arlington Road at the junction of Delancey Street with a “No Entry” sign seemed to be understood immediately.
But the Flying Motorcycle sign for eastbound motor traffic on Jamestown Road at the junction of Arlington Road was ignored at first but things have improved since it has been recognised in Google Maps and Waze which took about two weeks.
The Mornington Street filter is to be enforced by ANPR cameras. We gather that the camera infrastructure is now in but the camera has not yet arrived. Also, there is a running battle going on between residents who have put cones out and drivers who keep moving them
Around this time, advance warning signs were in place along the approach route from the west
Through motor traffic has been excluded from the Seven Dials area in the day time. The details are on Camden’s website here.
There is a full closure on Monmouth Street (south) between Tower Street and Shelton Street.
And a timed closure (10-6 every day) of most of the streets in the area, with a longer closure (7-7 Mon-Sat) of Earlham Street.
Our map shows the locations of the five filters, which are reducing through motor traffic across the green area.
Primrose Hill school, Brecknock school and Minster Road are now in operation
The Neighbourhoods of the Future scheme is delayed once again (until 2nd November).
Five more schemes are also promised for 2nd November: Haverstock and Camden School for Girls, Rhyl and Netley and Hampstead Parochial + UCS Junior. This will bring the total number in Camden to 13 including the HSS Zone in Hampstead which covers several streets.
