(actually it’s less…so get cracking and pass it on!)

Opponents of one of London’s Cycle Superhighways have fundamentally misunderstood the scheme and are misrepresenting the facts to oppose it, according to London’s Cycling Commissioner. Some individuals concerned about the potential effect on congestion and local business have incorrectly claimed traffic lanes will be removed and have even got the proposed route wrong in campaigning material and interviews with local media, contrary to the evidence in consultation material.
Cycle Superhighway 11 (CS11), is proposed to run from Swiss Cottage to the West End via Regent’s Park, and the London Cycling Commissioner, Andrew Gilligan, told road.cc claims the scheme will cause gridlock and prevent people from accessing the park are among a raft of “made up” claims by opponents.
Local cyclists who support the scheme say there is a week to save the route, and are urging people to show their support by completing the consultation, which ends this Sunday 20th March. Regent’s Park Cyclists have put together a suggested quick response for those who want to support the scheme, but they urge people to fill in all sections.
