  4. 4. 4Camden Cycling Campaign March 2016 Benefits • Safety for cyclists and pedestrians. The previous 2-way track had safety issues resulting in several serious injury collisions: For people on bikes: – motor & cycle - mainly due to westbound motors turning right, e.g. into Gordon Street and not seeing cycles on their right – cycle & cycle – due to narrow and bendy 2-way track For pedestrians: Confusion when crossing the 2-way track – need to look left/right too many times, little space to wait. • Tranquility and improved air quality in this predominantly pedestrian area • Reduced rat running in connection with the West End Project • Making the option of cycling to work more attractive
  5. 5. 5Camden Cycling Campaign March 2016 Safer Bloomsbury? • A campaign to demonstrate the level of support that exists for safe and attractive conditions for cycling to work or college in Bloomsbury. • Follows in the footsteps of CyclingWorks, a successful effort to garner business support for the approval of TfL’s E-W and N-S segregated Cycle Superhighways.
