High quality cycling and highway infrastructure is essential for delivering safe space for cycling and to make it safe and enjoyable for people of all ages and abilities.
The Love London Go Dutch promises made by the Mayor of London in 2012 included commitments to deliver cycling infastructure to the best international standards on the Cycling Superhighways and on all major road developments in London.
Our 2016 Sign for Cycling campaign has also ensured that London's new Mayor, Sadiq Khan is commited to making cycling safe and enjoyable through our three-point agenda. We'll be campaigning to make sure he delivers on these promises. These include:
1. More safe space for cycling
LCC secured a huge investment in cycling at the last Mayoral election. But London urgently needs more high-quality, protected space on main roads and at junctions – these places force cyclists to mix with heavy or fast moving motor traffic, which can put people off cycling. Our next Mayor must triple the number of miles of protected cycle lanes on London’s roads, so that people of all ages and abilities can access the whole road network by bike.
2. A “Mini Holland” for every London Borough
3. An end to lorry danger
