King's Cross Junction consultation 2014
Deadline: 24 March 2014
Note: the most significant place in this proposal is the Gray's Inn Road/York Way route, where Deep Lee was killed in 2011.
Drop-in sessions: 4 and 11 March 2014
Time: 16:30 – 19:00
Venue: King’s Cross Neighbourhood Centre, 51 Argyle Street
CCC were consulted in advance and do not like the proposals. Our main objections are that these proposals:
1. fail to meet TfL’s own 2005 Cycle Design Standards, on many points,
2. put cyclists on the pavement at an extremely pedestrian-busy junction,
3. fail to narrow the traffic heading into York Way down to one lane early enough. It narrows, already, to one lane once it reaches the bus stops in York Way, so it is perverse not to narrow it before the junction, thus freeing up space for a cycle lane to take cyclists safely through the junction.
We have other more detailed objections which we will post later.
