Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL officers met Torriano Primary School on 9 November 2015 to discuss the school's safety concerns and to present proposals to address the issues. These could include altering the carriageway and footway on the approach of Camden Park Road into the junction of Camden Road. TfL will also consult on extending the bus lane on Camden Road and investigate other changes to reduce the likelihood of traffic tailbacks at peak times, which can obstruct pedestrian crossing movements. Any changes will need to be agreed with the London Borough of Camden.
