Euston Road - Alternative Pedestrian Link Consultation

Closed 23 Dec 2010

Opened 25 Nov 2010

Results expected 21 Jan 2011

Overview

The council carried out a consultation to obtain views from the public as to its proposal to improve the street environment on Brill Place and Phoenix Road.

Brill Place and Phoenix Road directly link St Pancras International and Euston stations. The council would like to encourage more pedestrians to use this route as an alternative to Euston Road which is heavily congested. The proposals would upgrade the whole street and provide a more pleasant environment for residents and pedestrians

Why we are consulting

We needed to hear your views and this consultation exercise was intended to find out if there was broad public support for the proposals, which were to:

• Remove clutter on the footway, including unnecessary bollards and railings
• Re-pave the footways in paving slabs where needed to provide an upgraded, even surface
• Widen the footways on Brill Place by approximately 2 metres on the north side and approximately 1 metre on the south side
• Improve the lighting along Brill Place and Phoenix Road
• Provide a raised table at the junction of Charlton Street and Phoenix Road to improve the pedestrian environment

There would be no loss of parking spaces as a result of these proposals.

What happens next

While it has not been possible to reply to individual respondents, all comments were taken into account. The Assistant Director of Culture and Environment (Public Realm and Sustainability) would make a decision whether or not to proceed with the scheme and respondents would be informed of the outcome of this consultation and the Council’s decision within three months of the consultation period ending, where possible.

Depending on the outcome of the consultation, it was proposed that the northern footway changes would be constructed between March and May 2011. The funding for this work was secured from Transport for London.

Also, it was proposed that the southern footway changes would be constructed in 2013 as part of the UKCMRI building works (the proposed research institute). The funding for the southern section would be provided by UKCMRI.
