The London Borough of Camden has issued a consultation on the changes they have made to roads in the Tottenham Court Road area (see link below). That included changing Tottenham Court Road to two-way traffic; restricting areas of Tottenham Court Road to buses and cycling only between 8am – 7pm Mondays to Saturdays; adding new segregated cycle lanes on Gower Street / Bloomsbury Street and many other changes.
This has effectively made the area inaccessible to almost all vehicles and made life exceedingly difficult as a result for people who need to visit the area on business. It’s been enormously damaging as Tottenham Court Road was a key part of the London road network.
One might accept that improvements to the roads were necessary but the result is an extreme anti-vehicle outcome which was unnecessary.
Please respond to the consultation and tell Camden what you think.
