Re: Camden Park Road and Torriano Avenue Safe and Healthy Streets Consultation

James Brander

Susan is absolutely right about the left hook into Busby Place. It's part of the serious link from Islington through to Hampstead and beyond. I don't think cycling should be encouraged on Torriano Avenue until that is sorted out.
Good luck,

Thanks Jean. I put the following the General Comments section 15
As a cyclist I am concerned about two dangerous places for cyclists going straight ahead when motor vehicles are turning left. These are at the junction with Camden Road when cycling across from Camden Park Road to Torriano Avenue and secondly in Torriano Avenue at the junction with Busby Place. I have often had cars accelerate and overtake me between Camden Road and Busby Place and then promptly brake in front of me and turn left into Busby Place.
Best wishes

Dear all

Camden proposes to make permanent the trial changes made in Camden Park Road and Torriano Avenue in February 2021. This excellent scheme has vastly improved the road outside the three schools on Torriano Avenue as well as providing a good northbound extension of the York Way cycle route. 

Camden also proposes some further improvements (including widening additional footway on Torriano Avenue and improving  the junction with Camden Road - TfL work). You can see the consultation details here:

The deadline is 18th March. We will be preparing a response on behalf of CCC and will take into account any suggestions made on this mailing list. My main concern will be to get safe provision for cyclists at the junction with  Camden Road at least for those travelling north on Camden Park Road and Torriano Avenue.
