Re: York Way Cycle Lanes

I made these comments
One place which is still risky is the gap in the cycle lane when Camden Park Road leaves York Way. There is a horrible stretch right on the corner where the 390 bus and other large vehicles turn where cyclists are likely to be squeezed out.
Also cyclists should be able to go straight ahead at the lights at Freight Lane going south all the time. It is annoying and unnecessary to have to lose momentum when there is an uphill stretch just after the railway bridge.
Best wishes

Many of you will have already enjoyed using the Pop Up cycle lanes on York Way that run between Hungerford Road in the north and Wharfdale Road in the south. As required under the Experimental Traffic Order, Camden Council are now consulting on whether to make the changes permanent or to remove some or all of them. If they are made permanent, the temporary lanes will be replaced with stepped tracks and there will be further improvements at the junctions and pedestrian crossings and a lot of improvements to the streetscape.

This is a very important consultation; if passed it will make permanent almost 2km of an important link in the cycle network and will change the nature of the street by reducing the domination of motor traffic.

This consultation is on Camden’s website at: which also has some very good before and after visualisations.

The Online Survey is at the bottom of that page and is straightforward to fill in. Please would you find time to reply as an individual as it would be good for Camden to have plenty of positive replies.

We will respond on behalf of CCC in enthusiastic support of the proposals and will also describe any potential problems that are reported to us. One missing item that we will be asking for is a protected right turn into the Kings Cross development just north of the canal but do let us know of any other issues, either on this forum or by emailing info@...

Thanks in advance!
