The Mayor of London has launched a public consultation on cycle superhighway 4 between Tower Bridge and Greenwich, including new segregated bike tracks on part of Tooley Street and Jamaica Road.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "I'm delighted to be able to announce plans to bring more than 4km of segregated cycle lanes to south-east London. We need more Londoners to cycle and walk for the good of their health and our air quality, and that's why we're working so hard make cycling safer and easier right across the capital. By bringing this route to an area of such high demand, this superhighway really will open up cycling to thousands more Londoners."
Will Norman, London's Walking and Cycling Commissioner, said: "I'm so pleased that we can share our plans for Cycle Superhighway 4 just one week after announcing Cycle Superhighway 9. These new routes are a key part of our work to make cycling more accessible across London and will add more than 10km of segregated lanes to the capital's roads. South-east London is an area of huge cycling potential so I know that CS4 will make a real difference to so many cyclists and budding riders by providing a safe segregated route that links straight into our growing cycling network."
Nadia Broccardo, Chief Executive of Team London Bridge, said: "Businesses in the London Bridge area are keen to make this a safe and attractive place to walk and cycle, whether it's for employees cycling to work or visitors coming to enjoy the attractions. With a new station and continued growth in the area, getting a street environment that makes cycling convenient, safe and attractive is more pressing than ever. We welcome the CS4 consultation and look forward to new investment ensuring a world class street environment for a healthy London Bridge."
The Cycle Superhighway 4 consultation ends on 19 November. Details at www.tfl.gov.uk/cs4
