- Bloomsbury Way and Vernon Place Gas Works

The gas main looks like a replacement for Nordstream.
I note that Cadent's generosity extends only to Bury Place, where the inevitable 'cyclists dismount and use pavement' appears.

Those of you who have cycled along Vernon Place and Bloomsbury
Way (continuation of Theobalds Road) recently will be aware of the
major works to replace the gas main. This has resulted in a lane
being closed and major diversions. Cadent have been able to keep a
westbound cycle-only lane open with a short diversion via a
contraflow on Southampton Place and then via Barter Street, to
avoid having to go round the Holborn Gyratory with the buses and
motor vehicles. Most cyclists are using this, which is good,
though some are using the footway (not popular).
Starting tomorrow, works will begin at the junction with
Southampton Row and though the road layout will change the cycle
signals installed earlier this year will still operate as
designed, so the junction should remain safe. But please be
careful! Email me with any issues and I'll take it up with Camden.
