Proposed Camley Street Zebra Crossing

Closed 13 Mar 2020

Opened 17 Feb 2020


We are writing to seek your views on the Council’s proposal to install a zebra crossing outside the new residential development at 102 Camley Street (Onyx development). This development has resulted in an increase in the number of pedestrians in the area.

The development provides direct and step free access to the Regent’s canal towpath via a new ramp . However, where pedestrians cross Camley Street to get to the new ramp, it is often blocked by parked vehicles and has been raised as a road safety concern by officers and parents of pupils from the nearby Kings Cross Academy school.

The proposed zebra crossing will provide a safe crossing point across Camley Street for pedestrians including parents/carers and school children. It will be raised to the same level as the footway which will help those using pushchairs and wheelchairs and help slow down vehicles as they approach the crossing.

The proposal will not incur a loss of marked parking bays, however there will be a loss of sections of single yellow line which will reduce the opportunity for overnight parking. Officers consider this loss necessary as it will allow for the provision of a much needed crossing at this location. A diagram is attached to this page (see link at the bottom of this page) to further illustrate the proposal.
