LB Camden has issued a draft agenda for the public meeting this Wednesday evening the 17 October, 6.00 pm to 8.30 pm at the Camden Centre – entrance on Bidborough Street, WC1H 9JE

The meeting will be chaired by Councillor Phil Jones, Cabinet Member for Sustainability at Camden with  Isabel Dedring, Deputy Mayor for Transport as keynote speaker. In addition to a number of definitely Camden specific items on the agenda, the following King’s Cross specific or related items will be covered, although they will not necessarily all be taken at once – it is a draft agenda so it would be worthwhile for King’s Cross folk to suggest taking these items consecutively and perhaps combining one or two:

York Way & York Rd tube station

Increasing the number of bus services on York Way and the feasibility of bringing the abandoned tube station at York Road back into commission.

King’s Cross Central/N1C

Additional passengers.

Kings Cross Gyratory

Noise, speed, cycle safety and liveability.

Poor air quality

The London/Euston Road area. What is TfL doing to address the threat to public health?

Why Camden and London should ‘Go Dutch’

A presentation by the Camden Cycling Campaign.

TfL’s plans for improving transport in Camden

Isabel Dedring, London’s Deputy Mayor for Transport.

    I just wondered what happened at last night’s meeting in relation to the York Road station re-opening issue? Was the same line trotted out – too expensive, will reduce capacity etc. In relation to the latter, this is not right as the Piccadilly Line will be re-signalled in the coming years to provide for greater capacity and also if this argument stands, there would never be any additional stations on the Tube network ever.

      Stuart… yes spot on, same line. I’ll do a write up of the meeting soon as I can, bit overloaded at the mo!!! (There was nothing earth shattering) Sophie :)

      • Sophie Talbot says:

        Ok… failed again! No write up (apologies!). But basically, LivingStreetsKX is pressing Isabel Dedring, Deputy Mayor for Transport to help the community in KX get the road system we desperately need. Otherwise, TBH, not a great deal to report KX-wise…. same messages from LBC as previously…
