TfL Consultation: CS5 Cycle Superhighway

Please sign in to vote.

Added by Shaun McDonald

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 have developed plans for a new route and would like to hear your views.

What are we consulting on?
We’re proposing to introduce a new cycle route between New Cross Gate and Victoria. Barclays Cycle Superhighway Route 5 (CS5) would run via Peckham, Camberwell, Kennington and Vauxhall.

Proposed road layout changes
The new route would bring substantial changes to the road layout to improve safety for cyclists, including:

More space for cyclists and buses, through reallocation of road space

New mandatory cycle lanes, all at least 1.5 metres wide

Improvements for cyclists at 52 junctions, including new Advanced Stop Lines, cycle feeder lanes, and speed reduction measures

An innovative cycle ‘early-start’ facility at Vauxhall Bridge Road/Millbank to help cyclists get ahead of traffic

Banning some turns for cars and lorries to reduce conflict with cyclists

Extended 20mph speed limit in New Cross

Other benefits

Over 3,000 new cycle parking spaces along the route

Cycle safety checks

Free cycle training

Industry-recognised safety training for drivers of large goods vehicles
