The Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association (LTDA) has been campaigning around traffic measures in Bloomsbury.
Camden Council has recently held a consultation around traffic measures on Tavistock Place, Torrington Place, Byng Place and the south side of Gordon Square which removed two-way traffic flow. The aims of these changes were to promote through-cycling traffic, improve air quality and reduce congestion caused by other changes to Tottenham Court Road; but the reality since their implementation has been serious disruption to local residents, businesses, and visitors to Bloomsbury. This is supported by the data which Camden Council released as part of the consultation.
The LTDA has been campaigning with its members, residents, businesses and other local stakeholders for the council to formulate alternative measures, which better balances the needs of all road users in the area.
Camden Council announced in February 2017 that the measures would be put to a public inquiry for further consideration. If you would like to be kept up to date with news on the inquiry and our campaign, get in touch.
