The work commissioned by the London Borough of Newham and the London Legacy Development Corporation undertook a Cycling Level of Service assessment on existing vehicular routes within Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

This did not consider the Olympic Park/Fish Island bridge (also known as the H14 bridge) as this is currently pedestrian and cycling only.  The H14 bridge has an outline permission to be upgraded to a vehicular bridge, and the implications for users were assessed and set out in the documents that supported the Legacy Communities Scheme planning permission which was granted in October 2012. Further details of the H14 vehicular bridge will be submitted for approval in due course.
