TfL in discussion over £17m ‘cycle superhighway’

At City Hall today, Transport for London will discuss the construction of a new £17 million “cycle superhighway” which would link Elephant and  Castle with King’s Cross St Pancras. 

TfL say work to build the new highway is expected to commence on March 2. 

In the discussions, expected to last two hours, the board will decide whether to approve the extension of the existing CS2 cycling highway, which runs between Whitechapel and Bow. If the board agrees to an extension, construction will begin on February 9.

Joining Wake Up London, Donnachadh McCarthy from Stop Killing Cyclists, said he hopes the plans for the new superhighway but that there is still much for London to do to make the capital safer for cyclists. 

His comments come after a cyclist was killed in Homerton yesterday.

However, Katharine Howell, from the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, told London Live that plans for the new route hadn’t been properly thought through and will only increase congestion.
