Safety issues at junction of Bury Place and Bloomsbury Way
continuing on from my first post about the Stand
another dangerous junction I encounter on my daily commute from NW to SE1 is the junction between Bury Place and Bloomsbury Way, just south of "The British Museum"
this junction has a segreated cycle lane, which is great, but the junction fails when it comes to crossing Bloomsbury Way to continue along Bury Place
as this junction has no "grid" keeping traffic from its centre, its very common for vehicles to block this junction and deny cyclists a safe passage across this junction once the green traffic lights on Bury Place have changed in our favour
I have tried my best to navigate through this junction during 5+ years of daily commuting and have numerous experiences of vehicles attempting to ignore my right of way and run me over, as well as threats of violence and swearing from motor vehicles including private cars, taxis and bus drivers!!
How does someone go about getting this junction looked at properly? Obviously the local authority has spent considerable money on the segregated cycle path on Bury Place, but has not considered the deathtrap that is currently the junction between the Place and Bloomsbury Way
