Embassy response - Waterloo to Greenwich Quietway, Tower Bridge Junction

The plans for this junction are needlessly complicated, and involve pushing people cycling and walking into conflict.

Tower Bridge Road Quietway junction

Just the first step

Last week saw the approval of the high profile East-West and North-South Superhighway routes in London, along with upgrades to the dangerous Superhighway 2 and more.

The Embassy welcomes these advances. We have, since we formed just over four years ago, championed the need for radical step change in design, and political leadership to deliver truly safe cycling for everyone, and this is a major step towards those goals. However, there is so much more that needs to be done in London, and, just as importantly, across Britain.

Manchester's Oxford Road proposals fall short of 'Dutch' quality

Manchester's Oxford Road proposals involve reallocating roadspace to create cycle-specific infrastructure, protecting people cycling from motor traffic. This kind of approach is much needed on busy arterial urban roads like this one. The bus stops in particular appear to have been designed well, with clear design routing cycling behind the bus stops, with priority crossings for pedestrians.
