A brand new Cycle SuperHighway running from the west end to Swiss Cottage - say hello to CS11. Now take one minute's action to make sure it happens - because it's facing a lot of opposition!
The one minute action:
And answer question 1 by ticking the button to support or partially support the proposals. Then put some words into question 2. Please, please, please do take the time to change the words we're suggesting, to make your voice count. But here's our copy-and-paste version if you really have only one minute:
I support CS11 but want to see the London Cycling Campaign's proposals implemented, including: good quality, wide tracks throughout; safe, direct and timely crossings for pedestrians and cyclists; 20mph the default through the scheme; no "critical fails" on junctions according to TfL's Cycling Level of Service; safe, comfortable and convenient turns for cyclists enabled in all directions at all junctions (particularly an issue around Swiss Cottage); traffic reduction if necessary on Avenue Road; gates closed at all times in Regent's Park and speed reduction measures other than granite setts on raised tables; an improved version of option B on Portland Place - with safe space for cycling on Park Crescent and wider tracks; and finally for the scheme to be carried on beyond Swiss Cottage as a matter of urgency.
Then (and this is very important) make sure you click the "Yes" or "Partially" support button in each section, fill out the About you section, and you're done.
If you have more time, please check the plans in detail and fill in the other sections. We know there is significant pushback against this scheme, as there is with every Cycle SuperHighway, from various vested interests. So the more feedback the scheme can get from cyclists, the better chance it has of not just going in, but going in better.
Consultation closes 20 March - so please get your response in today and tell your friends!
LCC's final response to the consultation is here.
