said they supported the plans.
Once complete, the route will run for 5 kilometres from Elephant & Castle to King’s Cross. The southern section, already open, includes Blackfriars Bridge where cyclists now account for 70 per cent of traffic at rush hour – the video above shows it three days after it opened.
Transport for London (TfL) says that it anticipates that the section that has now been given the green light will prove equally popular with cyclists and that wider pavements means it will also benefit pedestrians.
