Question

The planned removal of railings at Canada Water station will leave a desperate need for at least 60 secure cycle parking places, yet the bus station's managers are apparently opposing this. Will you ensure that your mayoral priorities are turned into action by instructing Transport for London to install enough secure cycle parking at the bus station to meet peak demand, in consultation with local cycling groups?

The London Borough of Southwark will use LIP funding from TfL to install by the end of March over 40 cycle parking spaces at Canada Water. These will be at the corner of Surrey Quays Road and Deal Porter Way.

There are also a number of developments at the station and the railings will not be removed until completion. The developments will provide:

- 60-80 bike spaces in a secure cycle park aimed at commuters with controlled authorised access; - 14 spaces adjacent to the library; - 38 spaces along Albion Channel as part of a public realm scheme; & - 1000-plus spaces within the development itself for use by residents, staff and visitors to the new development.
