I agree with Susan that there are still issues with left-hooks
though I think the layout north of Camden Road is much better than
it used to be.
- Continuing the bus-lane markings across the junctions should
help but maybe we can also get a blue cycle lane painted across
Busby Place. Or suggest that the turn should be banned.
- Need more details of the planned changes to the lights at
Camden Road (TfL). Ask for a proper cycle phase, and at the
least an early release?

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

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.
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:
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
