SADIQ KHAN today suggested he was seeking to seize control of Kensington High Street in order to reinstate cycle lanes being ripped out by the Tory council.
The Mayor said Transport for London was considering “all other options” in addition to seeking a refund of the £320,000 of public money given to Kensington and Chelsea council to install the segregated lanes on either side of the high street.
TfL can apply to convert a major road into a “red route”, thus bringing it within its strategic route network, if the borough agrees. If the borough objects, it is up to Transport Secretary Grant Shapps to decide.
