Segregated cycle lane for Kensington High Street next month – South London News
News Reporter 17th September 2020
A segregated cycle lane spanning the length of Kensington High Street will be in place by late October.
Kensington and Chelsea council said the “experimental” route will be separated from other road traffic with “wands”.
And it will include “floating bus stops”, where the cycle lane cuts between the bus stop and rest of the pavement.
It will begin at the Olympia London, and run for one mile to the south-west corner of Kensington Gardens.
Work on phase one of the plan will start on September 28 and take about four weeks, the council said.
Phase two will involve changes being made to junctions along the routes, and will be undertaken by Transport for London (TfL) and be complete by the winter.
The council hopes it will encourage more people to visit shops and restaurants and commute to work without using public transport.
