As part of a network of Cycle Superhighways across London, CS11 will 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 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.
We will now let motor traffic make right turns from College Crescent into Finchley Road, and from Finchley Road southbound into Hilgrove Road. Traffic modelling indicates this will reduce the amount of traffic into nearby minor roads, and could also improve access for local people who want to reach destinations to the west of Swiss Cottage.
Based on the consultation feedback, buses and cyclists will be allowed to turn left from Finchley Road into College Crescent.
Subject to agreement, CS11 will then run along Avenue Road, the Outer Circle of The Regent's Park, Park Crescent and Portland Place.
