Westminster council accused of playing politics over bike route
London mayor’s office calls last-minute legal bid to halt CS11 cycleway ‘disgraceful’
Westminster council has been accused of political game-playing after it emerged that the Conservative-run local authority had made a last-minute legal bid to block a new cycle route despite it being supported in a public consultation.
The council’s decision to seek a judicial review to halt construction of the long-planned scheme risks further poisoning its relations with Sadiq Khan, a week after Westminster also sunk the London mayor’s flagship plan to pedestrianise Oxford Street.
