TfL has removed the 'pedestrian guard railings' at the confusing junction of Kings Cross Bridge, Pentonville Road and Caledonian Road. The area looks nicer without them. Here's a link to google street view with the railings. As ever TfL's local consultation is a bit primitive. There's been a long debate about whether crossings are safer with or without railings and Civic Voice produced a handy pamhplet. I'd love to see much of Kings Cross become a giant pedestrian scramble like Oxford Circus – where all traffic stops at once and you can cross how you like in safety. Removing the railings is probably for the good here. But TfL needs to live up to its responsibilities, get a proper grip on the road crossings in Kings Cross and put pedestrians first.
