Tavistock Place Experiment : Make Sure Your Voice Is Heard.

Tavistock Place Consultation : 
AskPOB is conducting an independent survey to establish driver opinion on recent experimental traffic changes between Torringnton Place and Tavistock Place. 

AskPOB is an impartial third party, working in collaboration with trade organisations and groups to reach as many drivers as possible and to understand how drivers and taxi customers are affected.

About the trial :
Camden Council is introducing a trial of temporary traffic changes on the east/west route that includes the streets Torrington Place, Byng Place, Gordon Square, Tavistock Square and Tavistock Place. The changes are planned to be in place for 12 months and will be introduced using an experimental traffic order. 

During this time detailed monitoring will be undertaken. Once the trial has been in place for a few months, the Council will write to local residents and businesses to formally seek views on the changes. 

All views received during the trial will help inform a decision on whether the changes should be made permanent. 

Works for the trial will take place between 6 and 23 November and will include closure of the westbound lane to traffic. 

During this period wheelchair users will be excluded from the area and cyclists will be directed to move into the new cycle lane when required. 

Please take a few minutes to complete this consultation

It's getting like the old Berlin wall, I wonder if they intend to shoot people trying to escape to the west.

The cyclist already have their own dedicated cycle lanes but oh no, that's not enough. Those paying the congestion charge have to face yet more diversions around an already gridlocked city attempting to get to the west end but as long as the cyclists get what they want then that is all that matters really.
