Camden’s culture and environment scrutiny committee is calling on cyclists to provide written submissions of their experiences on roads across the borough, particularly on main roads which are managed by Transport for London, which includes the notorious King’s Cross Gyratory system.
In recent weeks there have been a number of serious accidents involving cyclists, with the tragic death of student Deep Lee (Min Joo Lee) in King’s Cross highlighting the dangers that cyclists face.
Submissions made to the committee will be used to inform discussions around road safety. Transport for London will be invited to attend and discuss their own programmes to reduce cyclist and pedestrian casualties on roads within Camden.
Evidence can be submitted by e-mail to Lesley.firstname.lastname@example.org or sent in writing to:

Councillor Jonathan Simpson, chair of the culture and environment committee, Camden Council, said:
“As the popularity of cycling continues to increase, and with the continued rise of cycling in Camden it is essential that we listen to the views of those who use the roads of Camden.
“The recent tragic deaths have brought home the need for an extended discussions on road safety issues in the borough, particularly for cyclists. There is an urgent need for Transport for London to address the tragic events that led to fatalities.
“We want to hear the views of as many cyclists and pedestrians as possible and I would urge as many people as possible to share their experiences with us.”
So, make your views heard. We’ll submit everything that’s been posted on this site too. Thanks to Camden Council.
