Transport for London has recently released the draft strategy for cycling at the new Nine Elms development (PDF) between Vauxhall and Battersea.
It's a very well written and presented document, with plenty of examples of good infrastructure, and also examples of what to avoid.
It covers such points as 45º kerbs, the need for continuous, smooth cycle paths, good lighting to enable route use 24 hours a day, and many other considerations. By proposing these concrete, physical measures, the document escapes the vague promises which often accompany developments like this one.
The Embassy feels that this is a document which TfL should be proud of, and it should form a blueprint for all cycling projects.
TfL are asking for comment on the strategy, so if you have anything to say about it then get in touch with them before noon on Monday the 25th of November.
It's quite a large document, so if you've spotted something we haven't (good or bad) then please leave a comment below and help inform the Embassy's response.
