Re: [CCC] Consultation on St Mark’s Square Proposed Pedestrian and Cycling Improvements

Your note is worrying for local cyclists and park users. How can this be stopped?
This parking area has always been of questionable merit. Of course it is used by coaches at the zoo, but the size is inappropriate.
Perhaps it is time to campaign for this area to be converted to parkland. Being flat it would be great for sports pitches or a cycling facility.
Bye for now

Dear Jean et al,
You should be aware that HS2 Ltd is intending to use the Zoo's car park as a holding area for HUNDREDS of 32 tonnes HGVs every day, for many years to come. A new access to the car park will be cut from Prince Albert Road. The 100m or so from the top of Parkway will be a potential death trap and particularly at the mouth to the new HGV holding zone - where HGV's will also be turing out (right) to access Albany St - their main feeder route to the Euston Main Compound.
A new nightmare for cyclists.

any chance of one in Albert Terrace too?
This consultation offers very-long-campaigned for two-way cycling in St Marks Square to complete the 6-year old scheme in Princess Road.
Camden proposes to take out one of the three motor traffic lanes and replace it with a northbound contraflow cycle lane. The parking will be moved from the west side of the road and replaced as a floating parking bay outside the contraflow cycle lane – with a buffer to separate the cars from the cycle lane.
They also propose a right turn pocket on Prince Albert Road to facilitate right turns into the contraflow cycle lane.
For pedestrians, Camden proposes an extra green-man crossing so that there will be one on each of the three arms.
