As we have always made clear, there will be the same number of Superhighways as originally promised - but not all in the same places.

CS6 and CS12 have been removed from the programme because initial feasibility and design work indicated that it was not possible to deliver Cycle Superhighways with an appropriate quality of cycling facilities aligned to the aspirations of my Cycling Vision along these routes. Our plans for the East-West and North-South cycle superhighways considerably enhance the overall programme, and are further complemented by my mini-Hollands and Quietways programmes.
