Save Tavistock Place bike lanes! Consultation deadline ends Friday 21 October 2016

Guest blog post by Cllr Siân Berry of Camden Council's Green Party councillor for Highgate Ward

Save Tavistock Place bike lanes

Tavistock Place - Photo by Josh BlackerThe Council began a 12 month trial of better bike lanes in December last year and it has been hugely successful.
Doubling the space for people on bikes in Tavistock Place and Torrington Place has led to a 30% average increase in cycling at peak times, and air pollution has reduced in the area, dropping by up to 21%.
The Council is now consulting on whether to make the change permanent, while also makeing the street better for walking too, with wider pavements.

It takes just two minutes to do - simply choose YES for Q6 “Would you like the current street layout… to become permanent?” and NO for Q7 “Would you like the street to return to its pre-trial layout…?”.
You don't have to live in Camden to fill this in - so please send this on to anyone you know who uses this street.

  1. In completing the consultation form online, I have added the comment: "It is important that the Council does all it can to help improve air quality. Though I can't cycle I recognise it as a helpful means for people to get about, stay fit and
    save money also."
