Commenting on today’s TfL announcement that the first ‘Quietway’ cycling route will open next May, London Assembly Labour Group Transport Spokesperson Val Shawcross AM said:
“The Quietways will provide an excellent alternative for less confident cyclists as well as those who just want to avoid London’s incredibly busy main routes. Cycling the in capital can feel daunting, that is why these Quietways are so welcome.
“It is disappointing though that it has taken 7 years for Boris Johnson to start putting in the quality cycling infrastructure we so badly need. Whilst cycling projects are now starting to come to fruition, too much of the cycling revolution we need to see will be left to the next mayor.”
