Barclays Cycle Superhighways are cycle routes running between outer and central London. They provide new cycle lanes and other dedicated infrastructure so that cyclists can enjoy swift, direct, safer journeys around the city.
We recently consulted on proposals to introduce an extension to a cycle route between Stratford town centre and Bow roundabout. Barclays Cycle Superhighway Route 2 (CS2) will run between Stratford and Aldgate via Bow, Mile End, Stepney Green and Whitechapel.
Having analysed the responses to consultation and reviewed the proposals in light of the Mayor’s new Vision for Cycling in London, we have decided to make changes to some parts of the previous proposals. These changes are detailed in our Response to consultation, along with a summary of the responses. Further details can be found in the 'Results' section at the bottom of this page.
What are we consulting on?
Consultation on Barclays Cycle Superhighway Route 2 extension – Bow roundabout to Stratford Town Centre has now closed. The consultation ran between 7 January and 11 February 2013.
Proposed road layout changes
The new route would bring substantial changes to the road layout to improve safety for cyclists, including:
3km of new cycle lanes, including 2.4km segregated cycle lane along Stratford High Street
Improved road surfaces and fewer obstructions to make cycling more comfortable
New road markings and signs showing journey times and links to existing cycle routes
New innovative bus stop and traffic signal bypasses to help cyclists get ahead of other traffic and improve safety
Over 400 new cycle parking spaces along the route
Cycle safety checks
Free cycle training
Industry-recognised safety training for drivers of large goods vehicles
