Cautious welcome for Transport for London King's Cross and Bow announcements on cyclist and pedestrian safety

In response to recent campaigns by cyclists and pedestrians, Transport for London (TfL) has announced a "strategic review of traffic movements" around King's Cross, including examining the feasibility of returning it to two-way.

TfL also says it has "identified potential options for improvements" at Bow, (another location that has been a focus of campaigning in 2011) and is carrying out "detailed modeling and design", with a view to sharing information with us in the New Year.

The announcement of the King's Cross review, due to start spring 2012, comes just 48 hours after a candlelit vigil (pictured above) in the area commemorated the deaths of over 100 people who've died on the London's roads this year. 

The review will see TfL working with Camden and Islington Councils, paying particular attention to the movements of pedestrians and cyclists. 

LCC's Mike Cavenett said, "There's still a long way to go before we see a people-friendly King's Cross, but hearing this significant change in language from Transport for London is a great Christmas present.

"It's vital the reviews at Bow and King's Cross come up with solutions that provide real benefits to cyclists and pedestrians."

Christmas works unaffected

A pedestrian-improvement scheme at King's Cross, which was already planned to start during the Christmas holiday period, will go ahead largely unchanged.

TfL reviewed its plans, drawn up in conjunction with Camden Council, in the wake of the death of cyclist Min Joo Lee at the junction of York Way and Gray's Inn Road in October 2011.  

The scheme promises wider pavements, reduced street clutter, and new advanced stop lines around Kings Cross station but it has decided there'll be "no significant changes to the original scheme in the short term", which it's desperate to have in place before the Olympics next year.
