Kings Cross

Kings Cross is one of the most dangerous junctions in London for cycling - we need your support to fix it now.

The Kings Cross one way system is one of the most dangerous junctions in central London for cycling. There have been 3 fatalities and 15 serious collisions near the junction in the last ten years.
The London Boroughs of Camden and Islington need to work with each other and Transport for London to make this junction safer.
What we’re calling for

TfL’s plan to improve traffic in the area did not fix the outdated one way system and has now stalled. We’re calling for a bolder, simpler approach that knits the area back together and calms motor traffic. This means:

  • Improving and creating safe cycle corridors to the area.
  • Better and more direct pedestrian crossings.
  • Separate left turning motor vehicles and cyclists.
  • Wider pavements.
  • Protected cycle tracks.

These need to cover a complex maze of several junctions where Euston Road, York Road, Caledonian Road, Pentonville Road and Grays Inn Road all meet.

Why this is important

When junctions are made safe the pay back is huge – they unlock miles of new cycle routes and make cycling safer for thousands of people. Right now, fixing junctions is the most important thing we can do to make cycling in London safer.


LCC is building a network local businesses and institutions to help raise awareness and lobby for change at Kings Cross - please get in touch if your organisation can help create a safer Kings Cross for employees, visitors, and residents walking, wheeling and cycling in the area.
