This junction is not part of the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN) and therefore falls under the remit of the London Borough of Camden, who I am sure, as the Highway Authority, would wish to comment on your assertion the junction was unsafe.

As announced in my Vision for Cycling in London, a new 'Bike Grid' of high-quality, high-volume cycle routes will be delivered within central London. With the boroughs agreement, this grid will include a mixture of both TLRN and borough roads. Work is currently taking place with the London boroughs to agree an appropriate route alignment for the grid. This alignment will be announced later in the year.
