Transport for London (TfL) is looking at extending their North to South cycle superhighway to Kings Cross, taking it along Judd Street and right past our offices and resource centre. We're really worried about this and are working with TfL to see it re-routed to maintain the safety of blind and partially sighted people.
TfL's plans would mean a huge increase in the number of cyclists using Judd Street and replacing the nearby controlled pelican crossing with a zebra crossing. We believe that fewer people would be willing to visit the building if the proposed route goes ahead. Hundreds of blind and partially sighted people come to Judd Street each week as both staff, volunteers and visitors.
