North South Cycle Superhighway
TfL opened the first phase of the North-South Cycle Superhighway in Spring 2016. The North-South Cycle Superhighway is a high quality, substantially segregated cycle route between Elephant and Castle and Stonecutter Street (3km), near Holborn Viaduct.
The route has been transformative for London cycling, and could only have been achieved through excellent project management and teamwork. It provides cyclists with safer, faster, more direct and comfortable provisions in central London. The route uses several innovative design features to improve safety. For instance, cyclists are physically separated from traffic through segregation kerbs, and junctions have been radically redesigned to give cyclists priority through early-release traffic lights. Vehicles turning left are also held back to allow cyclists safe passage.
Since opening, surveys show more than a 50% increase in the number of cyclists using the route compared with pre-construction, and in the morning and evening peaks, cycling numbers have reached 8,400.
