Your new cycle route between Bow and Stratford includes many left hooks for motorised traffic across the cycle paths without any additional signage or legal protection for cyclists. Will you review this again?

The Mayor

The extension to Barclays Cycle Superhighway Route 2 has provided significant improvements for cyclists along the route.

The scheme has undergone TfL's standard road safety audit process for highway schemes which is extremely thorough and, following this process, changes have been made in some areas and at some junctions to further improve facilities for cyclists. As with all new measures, TfL will monitor the improvements closely and make further changes if appropriate.
