Cycle track A40 from its end just past Northolt airfield through to the Denham roundabout. A very dangerous high speed 2 mile stretch of road.

  • Is there is main road or major junction that needs protected lanes or cyclist traffic lights? Yes

Commuting along the 'East' side of Russell Square I need to turn right at the junction with Southampton Row to go down Bedford Place. The reconfiguration of the Square before and after the Olympics left us with traffic lights at three corners of the Square. Right turns at Russell Square/Southampton Row need a right-turn phase on the lights instead of an exposed wait in the yellow box. Sadly most commuting cyclists jump the red light as there's practically no left turning traffic coming out of the 'South' side of the Square.

  • Do your local schools have safe cycling routes for children? Argyle Primary - No. Regent High School: nothing from South of the Euston Road

 

  •  Would your neighbourhood benefit from a 20mph speed limit?

Yes. Not only the back roads but Woburn Place and Southampton Row too.

  • Is your residential street used as a rat-run by motorists? 

Yes: Coram Street and even narrow Herbrand Street (two-way sections)

 

  • Is riding through your local town centre a total nightmare? Hard to define my 'local town centre' here in Zone 1, but the St Giles gyratory especially Bloomsbury Street to Shaftesbury Avenue is a fairly tense experience: some drivers seem to observe lane discipline, others don't. Construction lorries in the morning commuter rush  are the scariest.

 

  • Does your local park or green space need more cycle paths? What, you mean Regent's Park? Yes, for sure. Funnily enough, TfL cycle routes show cycle journeys across middle of Russell Square though they are forbidden by Camden.
