TfL's contractors worked within the terms of TfL's guidance document, 'Cyclists at Roadworks' during construction of the CS2 extension, and regular site inspections were undertaken to ensure compliance.

The guidance for contractors seeks to ensure that the convenience and safety of cyclists is fully considered alongside the needs of all other road users during construction. The CS2 extension works are now concluded and this first segregated track is now open.
