Cycle Superhighway 11

Court action by Westminster City Council in September 2018 has prevented us from starting work. The court ruled in Westminster's favour and we have not been granted an appeal hearing.

We will work with Camden Council to make the traffic-dominated Swiss Cottage area safer and less intimidating. We also want to work with the Crown Estate Paving Commission and The Royal Parks to address road danger in Regent's Park.

Scheme outline

We had planned to make significant changes to existing road layouts and junctions along CS11 to make them clearer, safer and more convenient for cyclists and pedestrians.

Specifically the route would help separate cyclists from motor vehicles between Swiss Cottage and the West End.

Change of name

We are combining some Cycle Superhighways and Quietways into one cycle network called 'Cycleways'.


In early 2016 we consulted on detailed proposals for the CS 11 route from Swiss Cottage to the West End.

The consultation received 60% support from more than 6,000 respondents, but we needed to do more to address issues raised by the borough councils and local community. These included a concern among local residents that motor traffic would increase on some minor roads.

Based on feedback we proposed to let motor traffic make right turns from College Crescent into Finchley Road, and from Finchley Road southbound into Hilgrove Road. Traffic modelling indicates this would reduce the amount of traffic into nearby minor roads, and also improve access for local people who want to reach destinations to the west of Swiss Cottage.

Buses and cyclists would be allowed to turn left from Finchley Road into College Crescent. CS11 would then run along Avenue Road, the Outer Circle of The Regent's Park, Park Crescent and Portland Place.
