Eastman Dental Institute

Dear Councillor Jones,

UCL Eastman Dental Institute’s response to the Tavistock Place and Torrington Place cycle lane trial.

I am writing in support of the changes to road and pedestrian infrastructure that are undergoing trial on Tavistock Place and Torrington Place.

The UCL Eastman Dental Institute (EDI) is the largest postgraduate dental institute in Europe and welcomes students and staff from around the world to study, teach and carry out research. As part of University College London, our staff and students make regular and frequent trips between the UCL Bloomsbury campus and the EDI in Gray’s Inn Road. The recent improvements to infrastructure in Tavistock and Torrington Place is strongly supported by the EDI as it increases the number of staff and students who feel confident to cycle in the area and has generated a healthier and more pleasant environment for those choosing to walk. As such, we strongly urge Camden Council to make the infrastructure changes permanant and lead the way in creating a safer and healtheir environment for all those who live, work and study within the borough

Yours sincerely

Stephen R. Porter
