Yes. Additionally, where TfL is a consultee on planning applications, TfL works with the boroughs to encourage developers to improve cycle routes and conditions for cyclists, including junction improvements, highway capacity and safety. TfL also provides free training on the London Cycle Design Standards (LCDS) for TfL and borough officers.
