Now either I missed it the first time or it has quietly appeared but I have just found a graphic on the TFL consultation on the North South cycle superhighway which show that TfL’s intended endpoint for cycles is in fact to dump them into the Euston Road and Kings Cross gyratory at Judd Street. When we first wrote about the route a week ago I didn’t see this diagram and speculated that the endpoint might be Argyle Street. The full diagram is here. We are promised a further consultation.
I am now getting confused by all the local plans – I think this means that cycle traffic coming from the South, heading north will have to turn right then head up the madness of Pancras Road with it’s crazily u-turning cars and taxis or York Way. Or go left, then make a sharp right up Ossulton Street with it’s huge traffic calming bumps for a long way around Kings Cross/St Pancras. Or is there a plan somewhere for a contra-flowing cycle lane up Midland Road. Grateful if someone could update in the comments.
Cllr Paul Convery has said in comments that Islington and Camden are still working on plans to dismantle the entire gyratory. Which as gyratory resident Tony notes might allow a North South cycle lane across Kings Cross Bridge (by the Scala). Daniel a local cyclist has written about the absurdity gyratory recently so I thought it worth publishing this. Bigger diagram below.
