Cycle Superhighway 2 upgrade

CS2 CGI image

CS2 now provides a largely segregated cycle route into central London, separating cyclists from other traffic. To make the scheme safer for cyclists and other road users, we have:

  • Upgraded CS2 from Aldgate to Bow roundabout, linking to the already segregated extension of CS2 between Bow and Stratford
  • Provided segregated cycle lanes to separate cyclists from traffic
  • Installed new, innovative junctions, giving more time and space to cyclists
  • Improved pedestrian crossings

The work was part of our Road Modernisation Plan.

The improvements

A number of innovative designs are helping to transform cycling in London and enhance the environment for all road users. Improvements along this route include: 

Whitechapel High Street

  • A segregated cycle track along either side of Whitechapel High Street
  • Additional cycle parking

Whitechapel Road

  • A segregated cycle track along most of Whitechapel Road
  • A major upgrade of Cambridge Heath Road junction to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians

Mile End Road

  • A segregated cycle track along either side of Mile End Road, using 'flexible traffic poles' where there is less space for kerb separation
  • Bus stop bypasses where cyclists are taken behind the bus shelter, away from traffic
  • A major upgrade of Burdett Road junction to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians

Bow Road

  • A largely segregated cycle track along either side of Bow Road and approaching Bow roundabout
  • A major upgrade to Fairfield Road junction letting cyclists turn right into and out of the road

Consultation

We held a consultation on the upgrade from September to November 2014. For more on the changes as they were proposed, see the final CS2 consultation report.
