This map shows Camden’s progress in carrying out the proposals in Camden Council’s Cycling Action Plan (April 2019). The map records:
- all of the protected links (segregated) as they are built (shown in purple).
- the secondary links (shown in ‘orangered‘); these are signed and mostly have low traffic counts (i.e. less than 2000 pcus per day)
- the remaining proposed secondary routes not yet implemented (orange lines).
We have put pins on all of the routes in the first two groups and on some of those not yet implemented – for study as to how they can become part of the network.
Click any one of the pins to get information about the length of that section and
- For the protected links whether there are tracks in both directions and the type of infrastructure (e.g. stepped tracks, kerbs or flexible bollards).
- For the secondary links, information as to whether they can be considered to have low traffic and whether they are signed
- For the proposed secondary links, notes on what’s needed for them to be included in the network.
The interactive chart below shows the total lengths of segregated lanes built each year. (It is based on the chart in the Google Sheet). Roll the cursor over the data points to see the distances in kms.
Proposed secondary links
Some criteria to be considered for acceptance in the network:
Low traffic (well below 2000 pcus per day), signed, safe junctions, connection to accepted links.
Some examples we hope Camden will consider (click on the pins in the above map for more information).
- Linking between Chalk Farm Road, PoW and C6 up Grafton Road:
- Queen’s Crescent. In LTN, needs crossing over Malden Road
- Malden Road – Ferdinand Road,
- Marsden Street – Wilkin Street. In LTN, needs crossing over Malden Road
- Savernake Road – Nassington Road.
- Linking Hampstead Road with Chalk Farm Road and with C6 via Castlehaven Road:
- Arlington Road and Jamestown Road (in LTN) together with the section of Camden High Street north of Jamestown Road would form a very useful northbound link to the new Chalk Farm Road route and to Castlehaven Road
- The southbound link via Kentish Town Road and Hawley Crescent would need work to make it safe.
- Linking C6 to the Camden Square Route (C50) involving crossings over Camden Road:
- A link from Hawley Road via Jeffreys Street, Wilkin Street (LTN) across Camden Road to Rochester Square
- Anglers Lane – Gaisford Street – Cantelowes Park across Camden Road
- In the west of the borough after the establishment of LTN in the Maygrove, Gardens, Fordwych and Kingsgate areas:
- Fairhazel Gardens – Compayne Gardens and the rest of Q3 then link via Loudoun Road to Elsworthy Road
- Fordwych Road
- Westbere to Lyncroft
- Goldhurst Terrace – Acol Road–Messina Avenue
- Priory Road – Greville Road
Note people will be able to cycle in both directions in all of the above routes so the gain will be double the figures given above
