In the consultation Camden states that they propose measures to improve the public realm and reduce bus journey times through the junction of Heath Street, East Heath Road and West Heath Road in Hampstead.
We note that buses 268 and 603 run along Heath Street through this junction.
They list the following problems:
- The staggered arrangement of East Heath Road and West Heath Road means that it is difficult to turn right or travel straight ahead when exiting West Heath Road
- pedestrians crossing the northern arm of the junction over Heath Street have to cross away from the their desire line
- southbound traffic on Heath Street is held while pedestrians cross East Heath Road
