The Knowledge Quarter broadly supports the work of KXBP (Kings Cross and St Pancras Business Partnership). In order to provide a more tied up approach to activities we are proposing to build on the existing consultation work KXBP has produced around a new Green Walking Route. As part of KXBP commitment to celebrating the environmental assets of the King’s Cross, St Pancras and Euston Area they are developing a network of Green Walking Routes. The first Green Route that KXBP is developing is an alternative route to the Euston Road for people travelling on foot between King’s Cross and Euston. The aim is to provide a cleaner, greener, more efficient route.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
To improve the quality of the Green Walking Route and encourage this as an alternate path for those that use the Euston Road currently. The Euston Road is one of the UK’s top twenty polluted roads. In addition to this it is a heavily congested route for pedestrians walking to and from King’s Cross St Pancras with difficult road crossings.
Innovative lighting will contribute by adding an additional level to the route, thus encouraging its use.
