Question

In your cycling vision you state: 'Where directness demands the Quietway briefly join, a main road, full segregation and direct crossing points will be provided, wherever possible, on that stretch.' Why have you only committed to do this wherever possible? Would you not agree that it is perfectly possible to install full segregation or direct crossing points anywhere in London when the political will is strong enough?

Sometimes, for reason of space, it is simply not possible to fit segregated lanes. The road network supports a variety of functions, requiring detailed engineering decisions to be made on a case-by-case basis. TfL will seek the highest level of cycling provision for Quietways at key conflict points and along main roads. Ultimately, decisions about borough roads will be up to the individual boroughs.
