Question

The TIRA [TfL Infrastructure Review Actions] study carried out as a result of the Blackfriars Bridge deaths recommended in June 2006: i) "An audit based on outcomes should be carried out in twelve months time to determine whether in individual schemes, and on the central London bridges, conditions are improving for cyclists. RNP [Road Network Performance] should own the responsibility for this. It is recommended that the terms of this review and the associated methodology should be identified shortly to ensure that the necessary review data is captured." ii) "The KPIs [Key Performance Indicators] for cycling arising from the NMP [Network Management Plan] process should be consulted on at the earliest opportunity." What progress has been made on these two key recommendations?

TfL continues to undertake monitoring of scheme outcomes, including recent scheme implementation audits on the A23 and A232. The London Cycling Network (LCN+) programme of Cycle Route Implementation Stakeholder Plan (CRISP) includes central London bridges and will be completed by the end of this financial year (2007/8) The outputs from this process will identify the current conditions for cyclists and help inform potential improvements. An audit is now underway to review progress against the actions and recommendations arising from the TRL review, with draft findings available by the end of this June.A package of Key Performance Indicators to benchmark and measure performance in relation to cycling has been developed. The efficacy of these measures is being trialled through the ongoing NMP pilot schemes. It is likely that the KPIs will be further refined as this work progresses. An NMP communication strategy is being developed and will include a timeframe for wider discussion of the KPIs for all modes.
