Thank you, I will take up that offer. To cycle in London you have to be a fairly aggressive personality, and cyclists are going to use that route because the safe route is so slow. It all depends on how the lights are run, and those sequences mean that in some directions it's going to be very slow for cyclists - which they simply won't accept. I think it is impractical to keep that space for buses, unfortunately, but the fact is that it's going to be used by cyclists.

This is a technical issue rather than one of principle. Perhaps Jenny would like to bring her cycling group to meet Derek Turner and I and we'll look over and see whether the TfL arguments stand up.
