Over the next couple of years, Camden High Street could be blocked to road traffic on a trial basis. The blockage will run from Camden Town station to Hawley Crescent and will be implemented during the festive and summer periods as well as National Clean Air Day and National Car Free Day.

The council said that creating a temporary new pedestrianised area will offer a more pleasant and safer environment. The decision follows the award of £500,000 to create a new Low Emission Neighbourhood in Camden Town.

The length of the road being used in the trial could be more significant if plans to upgrade Camden Town tube station also go ahead, as it would create a pedestrianised link between the new and old entrances for the tube station.

The council added that it also wants to encourage the use of cycle freight and cargo bikes in the borough in order to address issues such as poor air quality, and traffic congestion.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    The artists impression is mirrored. It should be the other way around, with the tube station on the left.
