London borough to pilot contra-flow lanes for cyclists

12.58 | 18 September 2009 |

Cyclists will be allowed to ride in both directions on one-way streets as part of a series of measures to encourage greener travel, according to a report in The Times. 

The pilot project in the London Borough of Kensington and Chelsea will allow cyclists to travel both ways on specific one-way roads where a ‘no entry except for cyclists’ sign will be used.

Sadiq Khan, transport minister, said: "The pilot contra-flow cycling system will help reduce journey times for cyclists while allowing them to travel safely and legally on the most convenient routes.  If this pilot is successful then councils across the country could be offered the opportunity to use similar measures on their roads."
