"London Cycle Design Standards". Transport for London's cycling design manual, covering requirements and guidance for the design of roads and streets for cycling.


The "Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan".

Left hook

A 'left hook' involves a motor vehicle overtaking a person cycling, then turning left across the latter's path. Particularly dangerous where pedestrian guard railings are in place at the edge of a pavement.

Leisure cycling

Cycling purely for pleasure, without any other purpose.

The opposite of utility cycling.


'Liability' refers to councils or highway authorities being found legally responsible for defective roads, or road design, that leads to injury or death. 

Light protection

Also referred to as light segregation, this is a method for separating a cycle lane from the carriageway by means of (typically temporary, or easily installed) physical objec

Lightly protected cycleway

A cycleway composed of a cycle lane separated from the carriageway by means of light protection.Cycle lane</body></html>


A 'link' is a road or a street that connects between junctions.


LIP is an abbreviation of Local Implementation Plan.

LIPs are part of the structure that Transport for London (TfL) uses to deliver transport strategy in inner and outer London, by allocating money to the boroughs.

Liveable Neighbourhoods (London)

Aside from the general aspirartion that everyone should have a 'liveable' neighbourhood, this is a London-specific programme run by TfL for transport improvements around town centres, residential areas and transport interchanges, linked to the MTS, and

Local Enterprise Partnership

Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) are

joint local authority-business bodies brought forward by local authorities themselves to promote local economic development – to replace Regional Development Agencies (RDAs)

Local Transport Note

A Local Transport Note (usually abbreviated to LTN) is traffic management guidance for local authorities, issued by the British Department for Transport.

Low Traffic Neighbourhood

A Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) is an area-wide intervention designed to reduce motor traffic levels across a series of streets, by confining through traffic to main roads (or 'boundary' roads).

Low-level signals

Low-level signals are small repeater lights that mirror what is displayed by the larger, conventional, traffic signals at junctions. They make it easier for people cycling to see signals that apply to them, without having to crane their necks back.
