Consultation on Princeton Street Traffic Improvements
Princeton Street runs between Bedford Row and Red Lion Square. It crosses over Red Lion Street which is on the useful north-south cycle route from Kings Cross down to Holborn.
Princeton Street is one-way westbound for motor traffic between Red Lion Street and Red Lion Square. Cyclists are already allowed to cycle in both directions, entering Princeton Street from Red Lion Square via a ‘plug’ (a short section of cycle track) separated by an island so as to bypass the No Entry sign.
This proposal is to close to motor vehicles a short section of Princeton Street on approach to its junction with Red Lion Square.
This will be achieved by means of three bollards at the junction of Red Lion Square
