Question

In the 13th Mayor's Report to the Assembly you state 'cycles make up almost half of all northbound traffic crossing Waterloo, Blackfriars and London bridges'. You also highlight the new road safety plan that will see TfL introduce 20mph limits over the next few years. Because of the popularity of Blackfriars bridge with cyclists, will you introduce a 20mph limit there?

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response from the Mayor 04 September 2013. My Cycling Vision identifies Blackfriars as one of the locations to improve through the Better Junctions programme. TfL is looking to improve cyclist facilities across Blackfriars Bridge and a number of design options are being assessed, including an assessment of speed limits.
