Improvements at Parliament Square will be delivered as part of the East-West Cycle Superhighway which, as previously announced, will run from Tower Gateway to west London and is due to be completed by 2016. Proposals for Parliament Square are currently being developed in consultation with key stakeholders. It is planned to undertake public consultation during the summer on detailed proposals for the whole East-West route, including Parliament Square.
