      Subject: Consultation on East-West and North-South Cycle Superhighways


      Dear stakeholder


      Transport for London (TfL) is proposing two continuous, largely segregated cycle routes through central London. Our proposals have been designed to provide clear and convenient routes for cyclists, physically separated from other vehicles. We would create space for the new Superhighways by reallocating road space from other traffic and changing the operation of some junctions.


      The East-West Cycle Superhighway would run between Tower Hill and Acton. It would start at Tower Hill, where it would connect to the existing Barclays Cycle Superhighway Route 3 (CS3), which runs east to Canary Wharf and Barking. From Tower Hill, the new route would run along Lower and Upper Thames Street, Victoria Embankment, across Parliament Square, through St James’s Park, Green Park and Hyde Park, and over the Westway flyover from Westbourne Bridge to Wood Lane. From there, it would continue along the A40 Western Avenue as far as Horn Lane, Acton*. Please visit tfl.gov.uk/cycle-east-west for further details and to have your say.

      *Consultation on Westway to Acton section to start at a later date


      The North-South Cycle Superhighway would run between Elephant & Castle and King’s Cross. It would start at Elephant & Castle, where it would connect to the existing Barclays Cycle Superhighway Route 7 (CS7) at Princess Street. From Elephant & Castle the route would run along St. George’s Road, through St. George’s Circus, along Blackfriars Road and cross Blackfriars Bridge before connecting to the proposed East-West Cycle Superhighway on the north bank of the River Thames. It is planned to then continue to King’s  Cross using New Bridge Street, Farringdon Street, Farringdon Road and quieter backstreet roads. North of Farringdon station, the route is planned to connect to a new ‘Quietway’ back-street cycle route to King’s Cross, which will be consulted on at a later date. Please visit tfl.gov.uk/cycle-north-south for further details and to have your say.


      The consultations close on Sunday 19 October 2014.


      Yours sincerely
