I start the morning with a huge smile. Councillors in Cally ward on the Islington side of KX have announced a road improvement programme for Caledonian Road that includes a new zebra crossing, road build outs, additional parking and canal bridge safety measures. And… return to 2 way traffic south of Wharfdale Road.
This site has long pressed for a return to 2 way working across the whole of the notorious King’s Cross Gyratory system. Cally councillors hope that by introducing the measure in a stretch of the road they control, they can encourage Transport for London (the Mayor’s agency responsible for most of the gyratory) to do the same.
We applaud this bold move by locally elected politicians and hope that TfL can pick up the baton and join them on the heroes platform.
