Boris Johnson's Vision for Cycling proposes investing nearly a billion pounds in new infrastructure. Andrew Gilligan, the Mayor's Cycling Commissioner, will set out his strategy for implementing the Vision at this special half day conference. He joins speakers from TfL, the boroughs, and design and planning experts to update and discuss how the capital is improving infrastructure for cycling.
The event fittingly takes place in Old Street, as a recent survey carried out by City Hall showed that 49 per cent of vehicles passing along it in the morning peak were bicycles.
Speakers will be addressing how cycling forms part of an active transportation strategy for London, how we can speed up the modal share of cycling, how the Mayor and the boroughs are working together to deliver better cycling conditions and how walking and cycling strategies can improve the quality of public space.
