What are we proposing?

We are proposing two continuous, largely segregated cycle routes through central London.

Our proposals have been designed to provide clear and convenient routes for cyclists, physically separated from other vehicles. We would create space for the new Superhighways by reallocating road space from other traffic and changing the operation of some junctions.

Consultations close Sunday 9 November 2014.

East-West Cycle Superhighway

The East-West Cycle Superhighway between Tower Hill and Acton is being designed in close consultation with our partners, City of London, Westminster City Council and The Royal Parks.

North-South Cycle Superhighway

We are also consulting on the southern section of the North-South Cycle Superhighway, between Elephant & Castle and Farringdon station, which is also being designed in close consultation with our partners in the boroughs of Southwark, Camden, Islington and the City of London.

North of Farringdon station, the North-South route is planned to connect to a new Quietway back-street cycle route to King's Cross. This would provide cyclists with a route through central London on low-traffic streets and will be consulted on separately.
