Tell TfL Archway plans must be improved - and help us claim a Space for Cycling win

This clip shows cyclists navigating Archway gyratory as it is at the moment.

 

Transport for London are currently consulting on proposed changes to Archway gyratory - a much needed consultation, as the video clip above shows. ICAG, our local group in Islington, say that while there are some positives in the plans and it's good to see that Transport for London recognise that the area needs to be improved for pedestrians and people who want to cycle, the plans include some dangerous and ill thought out proposals that won't make this important location safer for cycling or walking. 

ICAG have published their response, which includes suggestions for how the plans could be made safer, on their website. They want as many people as possible to respond before the consultation ends on Sunday 14 December.

Archway proposals

"Direct protected cycling through the re-engineered Archway gyratory" is ICAG's ask for the Hillrise ward as part of our Space for Cycling campaign, which all councillors signed up to support. ICAG say: "Archway is the first of the gyratories that TfL is planning to remove and the plans are still being developed. We want to make sure that cyclists have protected space on the new junction without having to cycle on pavements or other spaces shared with pedestrians."

Archway ward ask

 

We hope to report back on this ask as a Space for Cycling success - but to make sure it happens, please respond to the consultation and sign the Space for Cycling petition to ensure councillors keep their Space for Cycling promises.
