Three London temporary roads schemes to be made permanent

06 September 2022/Categories: Active Travel & Travel Planning


Transport for London (TfL) has announced that it will be making three cycling schemes introduced during the pandemic permanent, following public consultations.    

The schemes saw the creation of new sections of cycle lanes and bus lanes in central and inner London. The new lanes were introduced to separate people cycling from motor traffic.

Data from the schemes has shown that the changes have been successful in increasing the numbers of people cycling. Data has also shown that the schemes have not delayed traffic, with the road network performing in a similar way since the changes were introduced, compared to before.

Will Norman, London's Walking and Cycling Commissioner, said: "We've seen a huge rise in walking and cycling over the past two years as more and more Londoners enjoy using sustainable ways to get around the capital. To maintain this success, we are continuing to make our roads safer as we build a better London for everyone. I'm delighted that these cycle schemes have been made permanent, enabling even more Londoners to choose greener, cleaner and healthier modes of transport." 

TfL will continue to monitor the schemes, including the use of materials such as plastic wands, to ensure that the routes and the infrastructure used remain appropriate for the local area.
