p1-3/Nov13Kelly StreetWhat about dropped kerbs between Kelly St. and Castlehaven Road? Helps avoid Hawley Road and the 393 bus at Castle Road.Dropped kerb neededSusan Seymour Completed 10/07/2014 Photo
p1-4/Nov13Gough StreetJunction of Gough Street and Calthorpe Street needs a cycle gap across footway, or at least two dropped kerbs. Dropped kerb neededJean DollimoreStreet ViewCompleted 03/09/2014 Photo
p1-5/Nov13Dartmouth Park RoadDartmouth Park Road at Highgate Road: ‘Except cycles’ sign on No Entry both sides. Loads of people cycle through anyway, so this fits into the “feeling more cared for” category.SignageSusan SeymourStreet View Completed July 2017 Photo
p1-6/Nov13Regent’s SquareSince the western side of Regent’s Square was made two way for cycling this sign on south side of Regent’s Square indicating the route to Kings Cross is in the wrong place. It needs to be moved westwards onto Tavistock Place before the south west corner of Regents Square.SignageJean DollimoreStreet View Completed 20/2/2014 Photo
p1-9/Nov13Lissenden GardensImprove cycle access through the very awkward barriers on Lissenden Gardens at the junction with Glenhurst Ave.Barrier improvementSusan SeymourStreet View Completed 3/3/2014 Photo

p1-17/Nov13Bernard Street,Bernard Street, running along the south of the Brunswick from Marchmont St to Grenville St. .Suggestion: paint bike icons on the road, in the middle. Thus indicating to drivers that bikes are to be expected in the middle of the road. It won’t stop all the aggression but it should reduce it.

p1-11/Nov13Camden SquarePlease could the bicycle signs painted on the road in Camden Square & Stratford Villas be repainted? They are so faint they are barely visible! I would especially like a BIG one at the bottom junction with Rochester Sq, where cars often come round very wide, well over into the cyclists’ space.Missing roadmarkingAngela Hobsbaum 14/1/2014 Mainly completed. Remainder dropped. Photo
p2-13/Nov14Argyle Square / St Chad's StreetThis gate is difficult for wide or loaded cycles to pass through and it’s also ugly so bollards here would be good. I was asked to report this on behalf of a cyclist in the Argyle Square area.Barrier improvementJean Dollimore 2015
p3-2/May17Prince Albert Road Dropped kerb by entrance to new Regents Canal access ramp.Dropped kerbSean Howes 19-2-2018
p3-6/May17Langtry Road/Kilburn Priory junctionThe right turn for cycles from Langtry Road to the bridge should be allowed and the countraflow access made easier for cyclists turning from Langtry.Except Cycles plate neededStefano Bertolotto March 2018
p2-4/Nov14Healey Street @ Prince of Wales RoadA metal fence prevents anybody from cycling between Healey Street and Prince of Wales Road. The only way through is on the footway at either end of the gate.
We need dropped kerbs in both roads and the fence to be replaced by bollards.

p3-9/Jan 2018Goodsway at junction with King's Boulevard and Granary SquareConvert the existing Zebra to a Tiger crossing.Tiger CrossingJean Dollimore June 2018
p3-4/May17Mornington CrescentAdd an Except Cycles plate to the Left Turn Only sign at the northern exit to Hampstead Road, permitting cyclists to pass through the gap in the central reservation and join Hampstead Road soutbound.Except Cycles plate neededSean Howes (Checked 6-9-2018)
p3-12/June 2018Junction of Goucester Avenue and Regents Park Road, Primrose HillThe entrance from Gloucester Avenue to the cycle track on the rail bridge has an upstand of about 4 cm, This causes a jolt for cyclists and possible danger if not approached at right angles. The problem wasn't present before the road was resurfaced several months ago.Road surfacing issue.John Chamberlain (Checked 5-9-18)
p1-12/Nov13Oval Road I received the following email “I was wondering if anything was being done about the cycle path over the canal on Oval Road near Camden Market. I use it daily to get to work and am a little fed up with the flooding and parking in it. I regularly see cars parked in it and vans possibly delivering something or picking up rubbish. It also seems to get pretty flooded after rainfall".Poor road marking + Road surface + parking enforcementJean DollimoreStreet ViewDROPPED: Not on Camden property - for CCC to pursue with the Morrisons site developers
p1-15/Nov13Guilford StreetNot a cycling issue as such but one which will help pedestrians. At junction of Guilford Street and Russell Square, pedestrian lights to cross Guilford Street are held at red when Guilford Street exit is also red and no traffic is moving out of Guilford Street. These ped lights need re-phasing to allow pedestrians to cross.Traffic flow/signal changeJohn HartleyStreet ViewDROPPED: AECOM have advised that the signalling has likely been set up like this so that all pedestrian crossings start and end at the same time for safety reason, otherwise pedestrians waiting at Russell Square may think they can cross as well. Also say if you install pedestrian countdowns, then ideally all the crossings should finish at the same time to avoid giving conflicting timings. With some rearrangement of the staging, it’s possible to run the pedestrian across Guildford Street at the same time as the Russell Square traffic movement, however there are concerns around safety.
p1-16/Nov13Lamb’s Conduit StreetChange priority at the Lamb’s Conduit Street junction with Great Ormond Street to allow smooth North/south flow and make east west flow subject to “give way” controls. This might encourage motorised vehicles take more care when turning from & into Great Ormond Street.Priority changJohn HartleyStreet ViewDROPPED: Camden has an approved design for the junction that would make the layout more considerate of cyclists. Although it does not involve a change of priority - such a change would be challenging as it's a T junction with two access points so the layout of give way lines would be complex/confusing if possible at all.
The approved design cannot be constructed at the moment due to construction of the large scale GOSH redevelopment, but Camden have secured an agreement that the developer would fund the changes once the site becomes available.
p2-1/Nov14Lorenzo StreetCould we have a contraflow? For some journeys that would enable the KX horror to be avoided altogether. Might require some "Cyclists only" signage at the eastern end of Britiannia Street.ContraflowRichenda This is in Islington, so cannnot be dealt with by Camden
p2-5/Nov14Mabledon Place northbound and southbound at Euston RoadRemove one of the two general traffic lanes; use the space gained to provide a wider southbound contraflow lane (should help reduce the conflicts with pedestrians) and a proper 2m wide feeder northbound into the ASL. Parking bay on the inside could remain, or maybe be moved outside the lane.
Change the signage and/or signal on Euston Road to make the left turn into Mabledon Place for cycles legal even when traffic on Euston Road is held on red.
Cycle track upgradeJohn ChamberlainDROPPED 2017: Cannot be considered as a Quick Win
p2-6a/Nov14Oval Road at Gilbeys YardOn route between Oval Road and Morrison's superstore in Chalk Farm. Narrow cycle track(e.g. about 1.5m) sometimes obstructed by motors or flooded forcing people to cycle on cobbles. Reported as Quick Win 12 in Stage 1 but still badly needs sorting. Cycle track upgradeJean Dollimore DROPPED: not on Camden land. To be pursued with Gilbey's Yard owners.
p2-6b/Nov14Further west: The cycle track is very narrow and it would be hard for bikes going in different directions to pass one another. Maybe raise track to footway level to widen it?Cycle track upgrade 2017: This is private land. Will be carried forward to the Morrisons site development project.
p2-9/Nov14Entry to Morrisons Car Park from Gilbey's YardThis may be beyond Camden's control but I'm just asking... The actual access via the bike track is too narrow. I saw a woman with large bike trailer use the metal anti-trolley track which could be slippery on wet days. Is there any other solution? Cycle track upgradeJean Dollimore 2017: This is private land. Will be carried forward to the Morrisons site development project.
p2-10/Nov14Northington Street WC1Following the successful Quick Win 1 Ask (dropped kerb at Western corner), can we now have a contraflow lane between John's Mews and Great James Street? It is a vital link between Mount Pleasant and Queen Square.ContraflowAndrea CasalottiDROPPED 2017: Considered by Camden, ruled too narrow for a cycle contraflow.
p2-11/Nov14Great James St.A contraflow there is a great idea; it links to Bedford Row and would offer a very nice route Holborn-Angel avoiding Guildford St, which I suspect will take time to civilise.ContraflowAndrea CasalottiDROPPED 2017: Considered by Camden, ruled too narrow for a cycle contraflow.
p2-12/Nov14Brunswick CentreThere is still then the obstacle of a flight of steps to reach the bike racks so I wonder if we can ask Camden to provide a bike channel on the steps so that we can wheel bikes up and down the steps? Some years ago I asked the Brunswick management and got nowhere but perhaps if Camden is involved….?Stairway cycle rampRichendaDROPPED 2017.This is on Camden Housing Department land.
p2-14/Nov14Pancras Road/ Goodsway/ Camley StChange this sign on Pancras Road (facing north) at the junction with Goodsway to 'No Entry Except Taxis and Cycles'. Current 'Flying Motorcycle' may be legally correct but it is obscure that many people.SignageGeorge Coulouris No longer considered important by CCC
