Bus speeds entering Euston Square

Andrea Casalotti made this Freedom of Information request to Camden Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Camden Borough Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Camden Borough Council,

In February 2015, the Metropolitan Police carried out a follow-up
survey of bus speeds entering Euston Square from Eversholt Street.
The initial survey showed that the majority of bus drivers were
breaking the speed limit. This prompted Camden Council to change
the layout of the pavement, to induce lower speeds. The follow-up
report was sent to you and to Transport for London.

Can you please reveal the content of the survey? Specifically can
you tell me:

a. Has the speed of bus drivers decreased following the
intervention of Camden Council?
b. What is the average speed recorded in the follow-up survey?
c. What is the 85th percentile?

Yours faithfully,

Andrea Casalotti

Karlos Hill, Camden Borough Council
