This guidance for local authorities on designing high-quality, safe cycle infrastructure was published

London Cycle Design Standards (LCDS)
The seven chapters can be downloaded from the Streets Toolkit page
Chapter 2 – tools and techniques is here. This includes CLoS – Cycling Level of Service assessment matrix in Fig 2.3 ( pages 6-10)
Chapter 4 – Cycle lanes and tracks is here. This includes some diagrams useful when arguing about cycle track widths e.g.
- LCDS Figure 4.12 page 52 relates cycle flows (‘Low’, ‘Medium’ and ‘High’) to the recommended widths for one-way tracks and two-way tracks.
- while LCDS Figure 4.12b page 54 defines the meaning of ‘Low’, ‘Medium’ and ‘High’
Junction Assessment Tool
See LTN 1/20 Appendix B (also in LCDS Section 2.2.7 (page 13).
This provides a neat way of giving a score to a junction.
On each arm of the junction, consider each possible movement (at a crossroads there should be three) and for each one score as 0, 1 or 2. E.g.
- a movement that proceeds from one protected lane to another and is protected in time across the junction will score 2.
- while a left hook or unsupported right turn (i.e having to wait in the middle of the road) will score 0
- see how we used JAT to assess the design for the new implementation of the Theobalds Road/Southampton Row junction
- and this map shows junctions on the cycle network some of which we have assessed
- here is one that we did for the junction of Pancras Road and Midland Road JAT Pancras Midland with signals
- and another at Cobden_assessment
- and another at the junction of Kentish Town Road and Fortess Road KTR-Fortess-JAT score
