Cycle Superhighways

Wednesday 10 February 2016, all day

Motion detail

“This Assembly welcomes the construction of sections of high quality cycle superhighway in central London. We also welcome the Mayor’s recent comments urging his successor to complete the three Mini Hollands currently in train[1].


Encouraging more journeys to be made by bicycle could help London’s transport network to cope with the pressures of a growing population. It could also help improve the health and wellbeing of Londoners and go some way to cleaning up our polluted air.


We therefore call on the Mayor to work with the Assembly to ensure his successor builds on the consensus on cycling programmes that has been achieved within the Assembly in recent years, with a view to continuing these programmes in his or her Mayoralty.”


[1] The Mayor made this comment at the 16th December 2015 session of Mayor’s Question Time. “I hope very much that any future Mayor would want to continue with this work. On Mini Hollands, I think it is vital we deliver the ones that are currently in train.”
