Cycle Superhighway 11 (CS11) will give cyclists a clearer, safer route from Swiss Cottage to the West End. We plan to start work on the first section of the route at Swiss Cottage in 2018.
As part of a network of Cycle Superhighways across London, CS11 would improve conditions for existing cyclists by largely separating them from other vehicles between Swiss Cottage and the West End.
As part of CS11, we will make significant changes to existing road layouts and junctions to make them safer and more convenient for cyclists and pedestrians.
The scheme will make Swiss Cottage a better place to live and work, while also making it easier and safer for people to move through the area.
In early 2016 we consulted on detailed proposals for the Cycle Superhighway 11 route from Swiss Cottage southwards towards the West End.
The route runs along Avenue Road, the Outer Circle of The Regent's Park, Park Crescent and Portland Place, ending at the junction with New Cavendish Street where it would link in with the planned Central London Grid.
The proposed changes between Swiss Cottage and the West End include:
Removing the Swiss Cottage gyratory and introducing two-way operation on Finchley Road and Adelaide Road. Avenue Road between College Crescent and Adelaide Road will become bus and cycle only, with a stepped cycle track
Improvements for pedestrians and cyclists at Swiss Cottage, including cycle signals, advanced stop lines and new pedestrian crossings
New mandatory cycle lanes on Avenue Road between Adelaide Road and Regent's Park
Centreline road markings will be removed on Avenue Road to encourage slower vehicle speeds
New signalised crossing at the junction of Avenue Road/Prince Albert Road
New and improved pedestrian crossings on the Outer Circle of Regent's Park
Restricted access for motor vehicles on the Outer Circle by reducing through-traffic
Managing speeds on the Outer Circle and introducing raised junctions
Introducing cycle lanes on Park Crescent and Portland Place
Changes to parking and loading bays and hours of operation
