Thank you to everyone who responded with their views on the Camden Road toucan crossings scheme which aims to upgrade two pedestrian crossings along the A503 Camden Road into toucan crossings, allowing pedestrians and cyclists to cross at the same point. Please find our response to feedback shared in the Documents section.

What we are proposing

These new crossings, called toucan crossings, will provide shared space for both pedestrians and cyclists to cross the road safely. The scheme will also provide shared use pavements for cyclists and pedestrians along Camden Road, leading to the crossings. These crossings are:

  • Rochester Square crossing, NW1 9HU
  • Cantelowes Road crossing, NW1 9UX

You can view a map of the changes in the Documents section.

We are delivering the new crossings to help provide better and safer connections for cyclists to the existing cycle route that runs through the Camden Square area as well as to Camden’s low traffic, Safe & Healthy street projects.

We will be widening both crossings to allow more space for both pedestrians and cyclists. In addition to this we will be adding countdown timers to the Cantelowes Road crossing, so people will know how much time they have to cross the road, promoting safer active travel.

Next steps

We have taken your comments on board and will be implementing relevant signage on this scheme to indicate the shared area, where cyclists will be sharing the pavement with pedestrians.

The work to convert the crossings is planned to take place in early Summer 2022. These works should have minimal impact, we will provide another update prior to the start of the works to keep you updated on timescales.
