Camden Council installed Pop-up cycle lanes on Chalk Farm Road and the southern end of Haverstock Hill last summer and is now consulting on making them permanent with many improvements including:
- Replacing the temporary ‘wand’ segregation with new raised cycle tracks
- Improved junction layout at Haverstock Hill/ Chalk Farm Road/ Adelaide Road/ Regents Park Road/ Crogsland Road,
- Retaining the four bus stop bypasses as well as adding two new ones
- Retaining the improvements at the Ferdinand Street- Juniper Way junction
This scheme may attract hostile responses from the motor lobby and we want to make sure that there is a majority in favour of the consultation. We therefore ask you to fill in the On-line survey. The deadline for responses is 11th October but why not do it now, it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes.
We suggest that you reply along the following lines:
Q8, Q9 and Q10: “Strongly Agree” – to all of the proposals
Q11: “Agree” – to any of the points that are appropriate
Q12 can be omitted
Q13 answer as appropriate
Q14: Give a reason why you like it, e.g.: “Riding a bike through Chalk Farm is much more pleasant” If you can think of something orginal, then officers will be able to quote it in their report.
