TfL is working closely with the Royal Parks Agency to introduce improvements to cycle routes in these parks. For 2006/7 TfL is funding feasibility studies to investigate and cost routes as follows: Regents Park: - A North-South route connecting to the London Cycle Network, from Prince Albert Road across Primrose Hill Bridge, south past the Sports Pavilion and connecting to the Inner Circle.- A North-South route connecting into the LCN, from Prince Albert Road south down the broad walk to Chester Road.Kensington Gardens:- An East-West route (North) connecting into the LCN, from Black Lion Gate to West Carriage Drive, running parallel to Bayswater Road.- An East-West route (South), linking to the existing network.Once reports are received and agreement reached to proceed from the Royal Parks Agency, TfL will be able to programme implementation, which, of course, will be dependent on available funding.
