Question

Your vision for cycling refers to CS5 stopping at New Cross Gate, rather than travelling further eastwards. What is the point of high quality cycle routes done to Dutch standards which leave cyclists unprotected at the most congested, dangerous section of road?

TfL is still very much committed to delivering significant cycling improvements east of New Cross. The Cycling Commissioner has this month met relevant officers and the portfolio holder at the London Borough of Lewisham to discuss options.

Businesses with 50 or more staff and within 1.5km of the original CS5 alignment are also still eligible to bid for cycle parking, cycle training and cycle safety checks for their employees and TfL has already provided Lewisham Council funding for these supporting measures.
