Commenting on the TfL Board’s approval of the ‘Crossrail for Bikes’ Cycle Superhighways, London Assembly Labour Group Transport Spokesperson Val Shawcross AM said:
“The approval of these new cycle superhighways marks a massive step forward in the journey to make London’s roads more fit for cyclists.
“Londoners have waited seven years to see this kind of commitment to cycling from Boris Johnson. What nobody wants to see now is for that process to be further delayed by threats of legal challenges. Everyone has had their opportunity to contribute to this debate and whilst it’s clear some people have concerns, the plans TfL have developed enjoy wide public support.
“With work now set to begin to make these proposals a reality, our city will finally be on the road to making some of London’s most iconic streets safer for cyclists.”
