Borough councils and LCC make joint cycling plan

London Councils report

London Cycling Campaign and London Councils have produced a joint policy document setting out how to bring down the barriers to cycling in London and maintain the welcome growth in cycle use.

London Councils is the umbrella organisation of the 33 boroughs. A similar document was produced in conjunction with walking organisations. (You can download both documents on the right.)

The cycling report covers a range of measures including increasing cycle training, improving major junctions and gyratories, two-way access for cyclists on minor roads, cycle parking in new developments and on the street, better enforcement of cycling facilities and improved public realm.

The documents are clear messages to the mayor and Transport for London that cycling and walking must be central to the city's transport plans over the coming years.
