Cycling and walking

Getting Londoners on their bikes

31 January 2018

Why have there been delays in delivering new cycling infrastructure under this Mayoralty?

Why is there no specific mode share target for cycling in the draft Mayor’s Transport Strategy?

Whatever happened to the cycle parking ‘superhub’ at Waterloo station?

When will the evaluation of the mini-Hollands programme be published?

Is it still the Mayor’s ambition to triple the current cycle superhighway provision?


Tomorrow, the London Assembly Transport Committee will review progress and assess plans to upgrade London’s cycling infrastructure. The guests are:


  • Will Norman, the Mayor’s Walking and Cycling Commissioner
  • Lilli Matson, Director of Transport Strategy, TfL
  • Nigel Hardy, Head of Sponsorship, Road Space Management, TfL
  • Councillor Julian Bell, London Councils


From approx. 11.15


  • Val Shawcross CBE, Deputy Mayor for Transport
  • Alex Williams, Director of City Planning (TfL)


The meeting will take place on Thursday, 1 February from 10:00am in The Chamber at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).


Media and members of the public are invited to attend


The meeting can also be viewed LIVE via webcast or   YouTube
