    Lever Street - Two-way cycling, providing a westbound cycle lane

    Junction Bath Street/Lever Street - Kerbside build-out to protect cyclists turning into contraflow cycle lane. Loss of one car parking space and the provision of parking facilities for six bicycles.

    Bath Street through to Bunhill Row - Refreshing existing road markings to better define the cycle route

    Bunhill Row - Clearly marked contra-flow cycle lane which will help cycle safety by making it clearer that cyclists are using this route

    Bunhill Row junction Chiswell Street - Protection for cyclists with footway build-outs and traffic islands. A signalised junction could be considered in future, depending on the outcome of a consultation carried out by the City of London in November 2015.

    Chiswell Street/Finsbury Square junction - separate traffic light phases for cyclists

  • Clerkenwell Boulevard

    Created by Andrea Casalotti // 1 thread

    Here is an ambitious plan for a Bicycle Boulevard from Shoreditch to Fitzrovia, along Old Street, Clerkenwell Road and Theobalds Road, open only to bicycles, buses and motor traffic for local access only.
    a. It is now the most cycled route in London, showing that it is the desired EW route.
    b. It is of variable width, therefore trying to accommodate bikes, buses, and through traffic in a consistent and safe way is impossible. In other words, a compromise will be a botch job.
    c. There will not be mixing of buses and bicycles: bicycles will have a dedicated two way cycle lane on the South side of the street.
    d. The Boulevard stops being a mega- EW-rat-run. Motor traffic will have to use Pentonville/City Road.
