Achieving this ambition
The Mayor’s Vision for Cycling document sets out how this will be achieved, focusing on four main outcomes:
A Tube network for the bike. London will have a network of direct, joined-up cycle tracks, with many running in parallel with key Underground, rail and bus routes.
Safer streets for the bike. Spending on the Better Junctions programme will be significantly increased and substantial improvements to the worst junctions will be prioritised. With government help, a range of radical measures will improve the safety of cyclists around large vehicles.
More people travelling by bike. We will 'normalise' cycling, making it something anyone feels comfortable doing.
Better places for everyone. The new bike routes are a step towards the Mayor's vision of a 'village in the city', with more trees, more space for pedestrians and less traffic.
