Answered By: 
The Mayor

Transport for London is currently progressing work on Cycle Superhighways and is keeping the MPS Traffic Operational Command Unit updated on progress. Within the current budgetary constraints there are no plans to allocate additional policing resources to these areas.

However, the Traffic Operational Command Unit is working with City of London Police, who are leading for both organisations, on a review of Advanced Stop boxes with the Department for Transport and also engaging with partners to reduce cycling fatalities involving lorries. This multi-agency group may broaden its remit to include wider cycling safety issues.
