Schemes are not fully compliant with the London Cycling Design Standards (LCDS) if they do not meet the stated critical factors in the Cycling Level of Service (CLoS) assessment.

All highway schemes developed by TfL have key outcomes identified at their inception. These will normally relate to a range of users and their relative priority will depend on the local and strategic needs of each location. CLoS helps designers to identify areas that may be of concern for cyclists and these will always be carefully considered and addressed within the constraints of the project.
