Further to Question No: 2015/3794

'TfL has recently published an extensively revised and updated set of London Cycling Design Standards (LCDS, 2014). They represent a significant step towards the achievement of consistent highway designs offering safe and convenient cycling conditions on all London's roads. Included in the LCDS is a Cycling Level of Service (CLoS) assessment procedure and an associated Junction Assessment Tool (JAT), both of which offer scoring schemes that aid the assessment of cycling safety and convenience in new highway designs. However, neither the CLoS procedure nor the simpler JAT appears to be in regular use by TfL to evaluate the designs for proposed new and upgraded junctions. Will you ensure that an assessment based on one or both of these useful metrics is used by TfL for future highway designs and will you set minimum assessment scores that should normally be achieved in such designs?'

your  response being:

'Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.'

Will you now give a substantive reply?
