Residents of the 30-40 Grafton Way council block near Warren Street are currently wedged inside a gyratory that serves traffic for Euston Road. This gyratory brings traffic south of the Euston Road — the only part of Camden south of the Euston Road that is excluded from the Congestion Charge. As a result they have high levels of traffic; and recent HS2 monitoring data indicates that air quality is extremely poor. This block also sits in between UCLH and the soon-to-open Proton Beam Therapy Unit. Gyratories are also, in general, road systems which local authorities are now rightly seeking to remove given the high levels of traffic they encourage.
Given the residential nature of Grafton Way, the presence of two major hospital sites, and the canyon-like nature of the road itself:
• can Transport for London please state if it will consider plans to remove this gyratory?
• can TfL set out the process it will follow for doing so?
• which TfL officer would be responsible for commission this project?
• can TfL please state if it is open to fully or part pedestrianising this part of Grafton Way, working with Camden Council to do so? In the meantime , will you extend the ULEZ to include the Gyratory?
