London's cycling superhighway may inspire similar schemes across the UK
The capital’s 18-mile segregated bike lane project could become a template for other cities – provided it gets approved
So it seems London will get its segregated bike lanes after all, admittedly with the caveat that a couple of vested interests are still trying to derail the schemes.
On Tuesday, Boris Johnson, the city’s mayor, announced that two ambitious planned cycle routes would be built much as planned. As the centrepiece of a wider £900m project to boost cycling in the capital, one will go north to south, while the longer and far more contentious one snakes east to west. Extensive consultation found a big majority of respondents were in favour of the scheme.
