Cycling is a key part of my vision for the Vauxhall, Nine Elms, Battersea Opportunity area. This vision sets out proposals for an enhanced Nine Elms Lane, improved Vauxhall and, a brand new linear park. This will vastly improve the quality of the environment, the choice of route options for cyclists and cycle safety in the longer term.

As these plans are still in development, it is not possible at this stage to comment in more detail.
