Between 24 February 2014 and 24 March 2014, we sought views on proposals to improve safety in King’s Cross for cyclists.
After carefully considering all of the feedback received, we have made the decision to proceed with the proposals.
Following comments received about the provision of a segregated cycle lane on York Way, we have revised our plans. We are now proposing to introduce a semi-segregated cycle lane which will allow cyclists to move onto the main carriageway and overtake stationary buses and taxis if necessary.
Construction of the scheme is expected to start in October 2014 and last for approximately six months.
We have worked in partnership with stakeholders to plan a number of interim changes to roads in the King’s Cross area. For example, at the junction of Euston Road with Gray’s Inn Road and York way, we proposed to introduce separate controlled crossing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists across Euston Road.

We held two drop-in events where anyone could come and find out more information about our plans. Members of the King’s Cross Improvements team were on hand to answer questions.
