Closure of Frederick St greening?;tiger crossing over Calthropre st; Gough St cobbles; contraflows in Eyre St Hill and Saffron St; queries and snagging issues
Extracts and update the main results: (23% inc RCS from Aug 2016) 29% increase in Pancras Road and 11% increase in RCS (N) in ten weeks from 1st July compared with previous year.
We walked and cycled the route in both directions between the junction with Pancras Road and the top of Judd Street. We feet that the implementation of the scheme is of a very high standard: The surface of the cycle tracks is beautifully smooth; The stepped tracks provide appropriate segregation for this road (although we have some concerns where it is adjacent to the taxi rank, explained below) and their width allows overtaking; The junction at Euston Road functions very well, allowing people to make all the available turns without interaction with motor vehicles.
The junction with Pancras Road functions very well for people on the N-S alignment, but as we have noted before, it has a single critical failure out of the six possible movements, i.e. the commonly-used right-turn movement out of the the rail overbridge, the other five movements being fully protected from interaction with motor vehicles.

The inspection was carried out by John Chamberlain, James Brander and Jean Dollimore.
In this report we note the points that we observed during a walk down the southbound side between Kentish Town Road and Baynes Street followed by a walk up the northbound side.
On the whole, we are very impressed by the high quality of the implementation. The surface of the cycle tracks is very smooth and well- finished.However we do have recommendations for many changes that are essential for making the experience safer and more attractive for people cycling the route
