Camden makes Seaford St., Kings Cross dual-way for cyclists

Camden council has opened up Seaford Street WC1X for dual direction cycling.  It is now possible to cycle the Kings Cross North-South axis South of Euston Road on calmer roads omitting Kings Cross Road connecting  Euston Road, Kings Cross / Argyle Square with  Theobalds Road.

The points are Argyle Sq.  – Lukham Street – Cromer St – Harrison St – Seaford Street  – rear of Kingsway College –  Heathcote St. – Mecklenburgh Square –  Doughty Street –  John Street –  Theobalds Road.  The suggestion to open the little road up was mentioned in our Kings Cross Environment mapping survey”Danger Map”  for cycling and pedestrian safety improvements in and around Kings Cross.  Camden has promised to integrate points raised in their action planning, and Seaford Street is one of its integrals.

    Rather unsure about two way cycle lanes. There is a bizarre one on Royal College Street where I have narrowly missed being run over many times by cyclists as I step off the 214 bus. On more than one occasion I have been verbally abused for having the temerity to access the footpath.
