Camden

Streetspace for London

We are working with your borough to widen pavements at town centres and transport hubs, create temporary cycle routes on our transport network and create low traffic neighbourhoods.

Pavements have been widened on Camden High Street to allow people to access local essential shops and services more easily.

Temporary changes to travel

There are temporary changes to travel in London while we work on supporting the restart of the Capital including:

Funding for your borough

We provide funding to boroughs and local communities for transport improvements in your local area.

Local Implementation Plan (LIP)

The LIP is produced by the London Borough of Camden and agreed with us. It sets out the details on transport infrastructure changes in a three-year period to support the Mayor's Transport Strategy.

The LIP funding stream provided by TfL to help our partners in the boroughs and the City of London has been paused while we focus on measures to increase walking and cycling and to ensure social distancing on our network.

Find out more about LIP funding.

LIP targets for Camden

Each borough has set targets in their LIP against the Mayor's Transport Strategy outcomes - we track and report on progress against these targets in the LIP3 MTS outcomes borough data pack.

For example, the car ownership in the borough was 47,781 in 2017. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2021 is 47,600.

Residents in Camden made an average of 603,000 trips each day between 2015 and 2018 by:

  • Car and motorcycle: 13%
  • Tube/DLR: 17%
  • National Rail and London Overground: 11%
  • Bus/Tram: 13%
  • Taxi/Other: 3%
  • Cycle: 3%
  • Walking: 48%

We also work with boroughs to encourage more cycling. We recorded 28,083 daily cycle trips on average starting in Camden between 2015 and 2018.

More resident and visitor population figures are on the GLA website.

Vision Zero

We are working with boroughs to reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries from all road collisions to zero by 2041. They are responsible for enforcing safe speeds on their roads, as well as leading community programmes to encourage using roads safely. Find out more about Vision Zero.

In 2017 there were 144 individuals killed or seriously injured in Camden. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 80.

What we're working on in Camden

Work now going on in your borough includes:

  • Camden Road - changes at the junction with Camden Street include a new pedestrian crossing and widening an existing one
  • Britannia Junction improvements - proposals for the area where Camden High Street, Kentish Town Road, Parkway and Greenland Road meet include widened pavements and pedestrian crossings and a two-stage right turn and early release signal for cyclists
  • Harrington Square - we want to build a two-way stepped cycle track along Lidlington Place, create a new pedestrian crossing as well as make pedestrian crossings on Hampstead Road suitable for cyclists.

Bus network changes

From time to time - after consulting the public - we alter bus routes to reflect changing patterns in demand. We also make temporary changes, often because of road works. See the latest bus changes.

Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)

To improve air quality the ULEZ was introduced to some areas of Camden in April 2019. ULEZ will extend to the rest of Camden from October 2021.
