Answered By:

My team at TfL are working with HS2 Ltd to ensure that the highway works proposed at Old Oak Common as part of HS2 incorporate a step change in cycling facilities on both Old Oak Common Lane and Victoria Road. This will improve access to the proposed HS2 interchange as well as improve connections to new development planned for the wider area.  The current proposal falls somewhat short of expectations, and Officers at TfL will continue to press for enhancements that improve the walking and cycling network in the area.
