One of the highest-quality pieces of cycling infrastructure the UK has yet seen gets a welcome extension to King's Cross. Great news - but we need to put the pressure on to make sure it's as good as it can be, and goes ahead. The deadline is 20 March, so please get your response in today!
One minute action:
The consultation is here: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/cycling/northsouth or you can jump right to the survey to respond here.
Please make sure you click the "Yes" or "Partially" support button in each section you support, fill out the About you section, and you're done. Ideally also add some comments in the overall section. Here's what we suggest you base your answers on (please ideally don't just copy and paste our words - it has much more impact if you come up with your own):
I partially support this scheme - there are sections of high-quality track, but there are also too many sections of low-quality track interrupted by bus stops, and I do not agree splitting the scheme at Greville Street is a good solution. The removal of a rarely used bus lane on Farringdon Road to Clerkenwell Road would enable a far better scheme. I'm also particularly concerned with several poor junction designs that retain conflict and hook risks - at Snow Hill, Charterhouse Street, Clerkenwell Road and Ray Street particularly.
