Westminster City Council and Crown Estates Paving Commission have written to LCC to confirm they will not oppose closing the gates of Regent’s Park to through motor traffic as part of the proposed new Cycle Superhighway 11 (CS11). After many months of rows and delays this now clears the way for CS11 to finally be implemented.
A spokesperson for the Mayor said: “If all the relevant authorities are now in agreement, we are very keen to proceed with the plans as quickly as possible. We will be immediately asking for confirmation and for the highway permissions to proceed with construction”.
LCC CEO Ashok Sinha said: “It is great news that all obstacles to the roll out of CS11 have now been cleared. Implementation of this vital new cycling route will enable many more people to cycle safely and in comfort in and out of the centre of London. It will also make Regent’s Park a safer, less polluted and more enjoyable place for everyone to visit, whether on foot or by cycle. We urge TfL and all other stakeholders to now press forward together as quickly as possible to get CS11 into construction.”
