Sustainable UCL


Torrington and Tavistock cycle lanes

Last year the UCL sustainability team won a professional services award for our efforts to save the Torrington/Tavistock cycle lane trial.

The team was awarded the prize for being Community Impact Champions, for working with local residents, neighbouring universities and Camden council to preserve the trial road layout of two lanes of cyclists and one of traffic.

See the Provost’s letter of support for the trial here.

Of the responses to the consultation process, almost 4 in 5 wanted to retain the two separate cycle lanes layout. We are continuing to support Camden council as they conduct a public inquiry to make a final decision, and will be making further representations of support to the inquiry.
