TfL is working with Camden and Islington Councils on a feasibility study to transform the gyratory system in the Kings Cross Area.  The objectives of this study are on the TfL website (http://beta.tfl.gov.uk/travel-information/improvements-and-projects/kings-cross-gyratory) and are heavily focussed on improving facilities and safety for pedestrians and cyclists.  The study will coordinate with the planned alignment of the North-South Cycle Superhighway.

Additionally, TfL has been developing an interim scheme ahead of the gyratory review to provide improved facilities for cyclists at the junction of Euston Road with Grays Inn Road and York Way, and along Pentonville Road. The current programme is to consult with the public in the New Year with construction commencing in Spring 2014.
