New cycle route quality criteria

The New cycle route quality criteria will help us continue to improve the quality of the cycle network in London. The six criteria are designed to be consistent with recommendations in the London Cycling Design Standards and - working alongside other guidance and tools - should be used to shape the design of new cycling infrastructure.

The spreadsheet tool allows planners and designers to use data to determine whether conditions are appropriate for routes to mix people cycling with motor traffic. The tool also recommends when dedicated space for cycling would be most appropriate.

The accompanying technical note describes the relationship of the six criteria and how the automated spreadsheet tool interprets the data.

Cycling action plan 2 reference list

On 15 June 2023 we launched the Cycling action plan 2, detailing our approach to increasing cycling levels, broadening the appeal of cycling and making cycling safer. The reference list provides all the references for the figures used in the action plan.

Cycle parking implementation plan

London's first cycle parking implementation plan builds on new data and analysis for a strategic, evidence-based approach to cycle parking across London. Launched in July 2019, the plan includes a set of short term targets to install cycle parking where it would support the most cycle journeys.

New cycle infrastructure on London's streets

Summary report of on-street trials

To assess whether recently delivered innovative infrastructure trials work as intended for all users, including a review of:

  • Hold-the-left-turn: ahead/left-turning cyclists and left-turning general traffic are separately signalled
  • Early release: cyclists receive a green signal ahead of other traffic
  • Two-stage turns: facilities enabling cyclists to wait between signal phases and therefore avoid turning in conflict with other traffic
  • Cycle gates: cyclists proceed from an area ahead of other traffic in both time and space, and are held while general traffic proceeds
  • Bus stop bypass crossings: a pedestrian crossing of a separate cycle track that runs behind the bus shelter

This report summarises a series of detailed Transport Research Laboratory studies which will be used to inform future updates to TfL's street design guidance.

Pedestrian crossings at bus stop bypasses - guidance note

This guidance note provides an update to TfL's design guidance for pedestrian crossings at bus stop bypasses. It includes technical drawings for the arrangements tested as part of the new cycle infrastructure on London's streets report.

Shared use bus stop boarders - interim guidance note

This interim guidance note outlines the design approach to shared use bus stop boarders on cycle routes. It includes suitability assessments, design considerations and a recommended layout.

Use of traffic wands with cycle infrastructure - guidance note

This guidance gives suggested layouts for using traffic wands as separation on cycle routes. It supplements national and local design guidance. 

Use of cycle wands as permanent highway infrastructure - technical specification

This document specifies the technical requirements for cycle wands installed on the TfL Road Network where TfL is the designated highway authority and on all remaining highway network where the designated highway authority formally adopts this specification.

Cycle wands - installation guidance

This document provides installation guidance for cycle wands on the TfL Road Network. It supplements the technical specification, providing advice on the installation of wands to achieve the required tightness of 30 Nm. The document acts as a supplementary guidance to any installation manual from the wand supplier.
