Proposed walking and cycling improvements – Farringdon area

Closed 23 Mar 2018

Opened 22 Jan 2018


We are consulting you on proposals to improve the Farringdon area for walking and cycling.

The Consultation document can be found HERE and Proposed layout plan can be found HERE.

Our long term vision is to improve the area between Kings Cross and Farringdon, and we are delivering this in phases. The first phase has been delivered which included the provision of crossings along Gray’s Inn Road and changes to parking, waiting and loading to help buses arrive and leave bus stops quickly and safely reducing delay to their journeys.

This leaflet provides you with information on what the issues are and what changes we are proposing as part of our next phase of delivery. These changes will help reduce the dominance of motor traffic in key areas which will help make it a better and safer environment for walking and cycling.

The changes described in this consultation are being proposed as part of a larger vision for the King’s Cross - Farringdon Area that will contribute towards meeting the following objectives:

  • Improved streets for walking & cycling, and reduced motor vehicle dominance
  • Clearer and easier access to move through the area on foot, cycle or public transport
  • Safe, attractive and less cluttered streets
  • A better place to live, work  and do business



  • Holborn and Covent Garden
  • King's Cross


  • Anyone from any background


  • Transport and streets
