Question

Representatives of Camden cycling group have contacted me to highlight the anomalous state of affairs that sees one of London's largest and most attractive parks used as a through route by commuter and other through traffic. Will you work with the Royal Parks to return the park's Outer Circle, to its original purpose as an access route to the Park, rather than as a route for fast-moving through traffic, initially for a trial period of six months?

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

TfL is not the highway authority for Regent Park's Outer Circle. However, TfL works closely with both The Royal Parks and Camden council and the use of the Outer Circle will form part of future discussions regarding improvements for cycling in the area under the auspices of my Cycling Vision.
