Transport for London and Living Streets, King's Cross

TfL has acknowledged this morning by email, as specifically requested, that it acknowledges the detailed 2008 website post (excerpt below) about Living Streets in King's Cross - as it continues to 'consult' this evening at KCBNA 51 Argyle Street
Flash back to 2008 on King's Cross Environment (by Sophie Talbot)
[January 2008] saw local residents and King’s Cross St Pancras station users walking the streets of King’s Cross giving their feedback to a report for Transport for London (TfL) on how it feels to be a pedestrian here. Conducted by Living Streets, these street audits were thoroughly cathartic, giving us the opportunity to get our concerns heard by the people that could really make a difference..
Please make contact with our Greater London Assembly Members (GLAMs) and ask them to press TfL into putting King’s Cross walking routes at the top of their priority list by:
1. Publishing the Living Streets report as soon as possible;
2. Consulting on a detailed Walking Plan for King’s Cross immediately after the Living Streets report is published; and
3. Implementing the results of the report and consultation without delay.
As we now know, none of the above actions occurred. There were subsequent studies including one by Buchanan. The 2008 report was eventually released under Freedom of Information.

Today's acknowledgement comes from Claire Alleguen, (kingscrossgyratory@tfl.gov.uksigning as "the consultation and engagement person from TfL involved with the Kings Cross Gyratory Feasibility Study" (sic)
