BLOOMSBURY ROADS ARE LIKELY TO BE COMPLETELY CLOSED TO TRAFFIC ALONG SOUTH, EAST AND WEST BORDERS
It is important for local residents and businesses to know that due to TfL'sStreetspace for Londonplans, all major roads bordering the south, east and west sides of the east Bloomsbury area are likely to be closed to motor vehicles, apart from buses and emergency vehicles. BRAG supports walking and cycling initiatives - especially for improved air quality - but is concerned about the impact of these changes upon residents' quality of life, and particularly the impact on deliveries - we need our small shops and local businesses to survive Covid-19.
Hoping that the inquiry will be a chance for the voice of local people to be heard and the needs of residents to be put before vested interests. We do not want our wonderful mixed and vibrant neighbourhood to become a pedestrianised 'campus' for the university or a racetrack for cyclists on their way to somewhere else!
