Just the latest in the borough’s slew of plans to encourage active travel, the plan is in its early stages, but was outlined in a report to the town hall’s Covid-19 Oversight Committee.

The report revealed the council was “developing plans for pop-up cycle lanes, subject to funding and approvals, on Haverstock Hill & St. Pancras Way, with other schemes also at early feasibility stage”.

The council has been scrambling to implement temporary transport infrastructure changes to improve travel in Camden during the Covid-19 recovery, but some councillors have been concerned by the level of consultation in place.

Camden has thus far received more than £1.5m from Transport for London for the schemes.
