TfL unveils plans for new segregated cycle superhighway
TfL has unveiled plans for central London's first segregated cycle superhighway which will tackle one of the capital's most intimidating gyratories.
Thousands of cyclists will no longer have to use the Vauxhall gyratory under plans for a continuous two-way and separated east-west track, which will be built from Kennington Oval to Pimlico, through the gyratory and across Vauxhall Bridge. There will also be around one square kilometre of new footway for pedestrians.
The new segregated track will be part of Cycle Superhighway 5 from Belgrave Square to New Cross. It will also link to back-street ‘quietway’ cycle routes at both ends, allowing cyclists from a wide area of south London to reach large parts of Westminster, the West End and central London entirely on traffic-free or low-traffic routes.
TfL's traffic network impact analysis shows that the completed scheme would mean some delays for motorists and bus users on and around the route. TfL says it will be putting in “extensive measures including enforcement, traffic management, and debottlenecking” along other parts of the route and the surrounding area, to minimise delays.
Public consultation has opened on the plans and work to deliver the scheme could begin in winter 2014.
