Dear Transport for London,

On 6 May 2020, a press release from the Mayor’s office stated (cf. https://www.london.gov.uk/press-releases... ):

“Euston Road is one of the first main thoroughfares to benefit from temporary cycle lanes.”

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please provide me with the design drawings of the layout for the Streetspace scheme, including temporary cycle lanes, on Euston Road.

If the scheme has been delivered by the time you reply to this request, please provide the drawings used to implement the scheme. Otherwise please provide me with the most up-to-date designs for the scheme.

Yours faithfully,

Jonathan Rothwell

Dear Mr Rothwell

 

TfL Ref:0428-2021

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on18
June 2020 asking for the design drawings of the layout for the
Streetspace scheme, including temporary cycle lanes, on Euston Road.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.  I can
confirm that we hold the information you require.

 

The new temporary cycle facility on Euston Road will run between Midland
Road/Judd Street Junction to Gower Street connecting Cycleway 6 and our
new pop-up route on Hampstead. We are also reducing the speed limit to
20mph along this stretch to improve safety for all users. These
improvements forms part of the [1]London Streetspace plan, which is
required to help London’s recovery from the global pandemic. Public
Transport is running at significantly reduced capacity to allow for social
distancing and we need to urgently provide additional space for walking
and cycling to ensure London can keep moving. If people switch only a
fraction of these journeys to cars, London will grind to a halt.

 

Construction has now started on Euston Road and will be completed by the
end of August. As requested, please find attached our designs for the
scheme.

 

Please note the Government has announced a series of measures to tackle
the Coronavirus. It is essential for London, and in particular for all
critical workers, that we continue to provide a safe transport network
that enables them to make the journeys they need to.

 

In current circumstances, we are not able to answer FOI requests readily
and we ask that you please do not make a request to us at present.

 

Answering FOI requests will require the use of limited resources and the
attention of staff who could be supporting other essential activity. In
any event, please note that our response time will be affected by the
current situation.

 

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
