Quietways are signposted cycle routes, run on quieter back streets to provide for those cyclists who want to travel at a more relaxed pace.

We are building the network of Quietways together with London boroughs, The Royal Parks and the Canal and River Trust. Central London will have 85km of the entire network.

Cycle Superhighways are on main roads and often segregate cyclists from other traffic.

The Central London Grid is funded by the Mayor's Vision for Cycling, a 10-year plan to deliver cycling improvements across London with spending set to total £913m by 2022. More than £54m of this funding will be allocated to build the grid network.

  • Improvements began in 2014
  • The first Quietway route, from Waterloo to Greenwich, launched in June 2016 - most of the first seven Quietways have sections that are complete
  • Boroughs will consult locally as more designs are developed
