Goods Way Healthy Streets Consultation

Closes 4 Aug 2024

Opened 8 Jul 2024


We want our streets to be safe spaces for you to walk and cycle for everyday trips, for children to get to and from school safely and healthily, for businesses to flourish. We want to reduce carbon emissions from road transport and for you to breathe cleaner air. We want to ensure that when we invest in our streets it provides a lasting legacy of greener, safer, healthier travel, helping us deliver our wider Transport Strategy objectives.

(Visualisation of proposed changes on Goods Way: view from western junction with Pancras Road)

As 69% of households in Camden do not own a car, we know that safe and easy walking, cycling and scooting routes are important. Supporting and encouraging those who are able to walk and cycle, by creating safer streets will ensure that there is more space available on public transport and on our roads for those who need it the most.

We want to improve road safety around Goods Way, as well as the look and feel of the street, as we know there are challenges and opportunities in this area. These include:

  • High numbers of pedestrians wanting to cross the road between Pancras Square and Granary Square and King’s Boulevard, leading to queues on the eastern end of Goods Way
  • Cycle lanes are not fully protected and stop and start
  • Not enough dockless bike and scooter hire parking facilities to meet the demand
  • We want to get more people who can walking and cycling locally
  • Poor air quality - harmful local NO2 levels are above the World Health Organisation guidelines

Why your views matter

We want to shape our streets together with people who live, work, learn and travel through Camden. That's why we want to hear what you think of the proposed changes: 

  • Converting the two existing zebra crossings into signalised crossings to make it clear who has priority, with generous crossing times for pedestrians
  • Physically separated cycle lanes throughout Goods Way and cycle and pedestrian safety improvements at the York Way junction
  • New shared and micro-mobility hub (a place for different types of transport)  on the western end of Goods Way, to include a dockless bike hire bay, sheltered cycle parking, cycle tools, plants and seating
  • Relocating the disabled bays to Camley Street near the Goods Way junction
  • New bus stop for the 63 (subject to approval from TfL)
  • Adding plants and trees throughout Goods Way (subject to further studies)
  • Making the eastern end of Goods Way one-way westbound for all motor vehicles, with cycles able to continue westbound
