Westminster unveils Central London Grid
Westminster has now published draft proposals for its portion of the Central London Grid of cycle routes.
The Grid is intended to be a network of direct, high-capacity, joined-up cycle routes across central London. Many of these will run in parallel with key Underground, rail and bus routes, and will be signed and branded accordingly. Two types of routes will form part of this Cycle Grid: ‘Cycle Superhighways’ and ‘Quietways’. The aim will be for cyclists to feel safer and more confident that they can navigate its streets with ease.
The proposals for the Central London Grid form part of Westminster's draft Cycling Strategy. This sets out how Westminster intends to help deliver the Mayor of London’s Vision for Cycling on a more local level.
The proposals are out for public consultation until 20th January 2014.
You can comment on these routes as part of Westminster's Cycling Consultation. Question 11 is the one about routes. In particular, you may wish to identify:
- Routes that would make a big difference to journeys you make
- Routes you already use that would benefit from some improvement
- Routes that look a bit inconvenient
- Important omissions
In addition, Transport for London has now published proposals for the whole Central London Grid. Link to TfL »
