    East-West Cycle Superhighway is available for cyclists to use between Tower Hill and Storeys Gate. In construction areas, cycle lanes will stay open whenever possible.

    In Hyde Park, West Carriage Drive is also open for cyclists in both directions. On South Carriage Drive, westbound cyclists should use Rotten Row as an alternative. As conditions have changed, please take extra care.

    Southbound cyclists can now enter the new cycle track at Victoria Gate and continue to the junction with South Carriage Drive.

    You can check availability of Santander Cycles using the online docking station map, or visit our cycling section for full information.

    Taxis & minicabs

    • Delays will be shorter than peak times before 07:00, between 11:00-15:00 and after 19:00
    • Taxi drivers should look for alternative routes where possible, especially during peak hours
    • Kerbside access will be available wherever possible during construction, although at times taxis may not be able to pick up and set down passengers at certain locations

    For up-to-date information for the taxi and private hire industry, follow @TfLTPH on Twitter or visit our taxis and minicabs section.


    Coach services using Lancaster Terrace should expect delays. There will also be changes to parking, pick up and drop off arrangements during the project, as well as after its completion.

    Contact your coach operator for details about possible changes to services, and allow plenty of time to travel.

    Deliveries in London

    Part of the route of the East-West Cycle Superhighway is an abnormal loads route. If you're transporting abnormal loads, contact the Metropolitan Police as usual.

    If you're making or receiving deliveries or servicing premises in affected areas, talk to your customers and suppliers now about making changes to your deliveries or collections.

    You can also:

    See our Deliveries in London section for information on moving freight efficiently.

    Why this is happening

    The East-West Cycle Superhighway part of the Road Modernisation Plan, and is designed to improve safety for cyclists, other road users and pedestrians. The benefits will include:

    • A wide, substantially segregated, two-way cycle track between Lancaster Gate to Tower Hill
    • More pedestrian space with widened footways, traffic islands and bus and coach stops
    • Improved pedestrian crossings
