Summary of recent achievements 

Infrastructure improvements

Two major area-based permeability schemes were completed during the last year

Permeability Kings Cross             Permeability Fitzrovia

in addition, two-way cycling was introduced in Plender Street (a part of the local east-west route). 

Since Russell Square became two-way, the SSL relief route is now complete apart from the crossing of Tottenham Court Road westbound, we should aim to get it signed as soon as possible.

Inspection Rides 

We have carried out six of these rides since June 2011:


Fairs
We had stalls at the following fairs

Inkerman/Alma Street Fair, London Green Fair,    Cyclists Breakfast, Primrose Hill Fair, Hampstead Heath Cycle Safety and Security Event

We also participated with CLL in collecting signatures for the Go Dutch petition

Interaction with LB Camden 

CCC together with Cllr Paul Braithwaite have four meetings a year with a group of Camden Officers to discuss how cycling issues can be incorporated into local area schemes currently being planned and how well they are addressed in built schemes. See the minutes of these meetings.  We also attempt to reply to all of Camden's traffic management consultations.

Committee members

Camden Cycling Campaign's committee, together with the joint coordinators, are responsible for deciding on the directions for the campaign and welcome input from members.

Minutes and Reports

All of our monthly meetings are minuted. In addition, we write reports from time to time.
