Dublin city council is set to approve a project banning taxis and private cars from three of the city's most congested streets. Under the scheme, car lanes would be converted to segregated cycle paths. It is hoped that this initiative would allow Dublin to increase cycling to 15 per cent of all city trips by 2017. Will you ask your Roads Task Force to look into whether such a scheme could be introduced on some of London's most congested streets?

My cycling programme has similar reallocation through, for example, the Cycle Superhighways. However, I have asked my team to look at the Dublin initiative.
