In the eight years leading to Sadiq Khan becoming Mayor the number of cars in the city sky-rocketed from 60,000 to 120,000.
But as the population increases, so do the vehicles, causing gridlock and mayhem on the city’s roads.
To counteract this, the Mayor wants to introduced more cycle lanes, and told LBC’s James O’Brien: “95% of the roads in our city are controlled by our 32 boroughs and the City of London Corporation and 5% are controlled by TfL,” he said.
“We try and work with the boroughs, the boroughs are trying to do right by their residents, they understand the consequences of air quality and pollution.”
