Answered By: 
The Mayor

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets is the Highway Authority for the section of Cycle Superhighway 3 (CS3) along Narrow Street. As stated in my Vision for Cycling, TfL undertook a review of the existing Cycle Superhighways and is currently implementing a series of location-specific improvements along CS3. Construction works are underway at Horseferry Road and Cable Street.   

Whilst acknowledging that there have been some previous concerns with regards to cyclists' speeds in this area, I am not aware that this remains an issue currently. However, TfL officers will engage with the borough and discuss this matter further.
