While much of King’s Cross has been redeveloped, businesses located here are cut off from the surrounding area by motor traffic dominated roads. And people travelling to work, or to the new public spaces and eateries, face unacceptable risks from the outdated gyratory system and a complex network of dangerous junctions.
We’re calling for a bolder, simpler approach that knits King’s Cross back together, calms motor traffic and makes walking, wheeling and cycling much safer. These improvements will transform the area into a pleasant place to stop, meet, eat & drink, and work.
TfL are developing plans for the area but we believe they’ll fall far short. We need the support of local businesses to drive home the message that King’s Cross is far too important for half measures. If you work nearby, please get in touch, we’re building a coalition to lobby for change and we’d love to hear from you. You can also support all LCC’s work on junctions by signing the dangerous junctions petition today

“A better junction design around Kings Cross would enable more people to cycle and keep collision rates down”
The safety of our staff and the local community is important to us and good/safe cycling infrastructure is a key part of any vibrant neighbourhood both for commuters and local residents. We feel that a better junction design around Kings Cross would enable more people to cycle and keep collision rates down, this is why we are supporting this campaign.
“London Cycling Campaign’s foresight and ability to act quickly make a far bigger difference than they are given credit for”
The work the LCC does, and the progress it has made over the years are imperative for cyclists in London. The team’s foresight and ability to act quickly make a far bigger difference than they are given credit for in keeping people safe and allowing us to continue to enjoy cycling in the capital.
“We need to deal with dangerous junctions and other gaps in our cycle routes”
“We need to deal with dangerous junctions and other gaps in our cycle routes which form barriers to people’s ability realistically to choose that most underestimated form of healthy, climate-kind, sustainable and active travel.”
“Cycling in Camden is taking off thanks to the many safe cycling improvements but some major junctions remain very dangerous”
“Cycling in Camden is taking off thanks to the many safe cycling improvements but some major junctions remain very dangerous and off-putting to people thinking of taking up active travel. We’d like to see North/South and East/West routes fully linked up by Transport for London.”
