Question By: 
Andrew Dismore
Labour Group
Asked Of: 
The Mayor


Andrew Dismore (Assembly Member for Barnet and Camden):  Could I ask you about Cycle Superhighway 11?  This has proved very controversial and divisive locally, with thousands of views both for and against.  You have told TfL to continue to work on Cycle Superhighway 11, an instruction that I very much support, but there are quite a few issues still to be worked through such as the effect on bus services, relocated bus stops, traffic at Swiss Cottage, Regent’s Park gate closures and the impact when combined with High Speed 2 (HS2) construction traffic.  Once TfL has firmed up its plans, will you arrange a further short period of consultation so that the public can comment on this further detail?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Sadiq Khan (Mayor of London):  Chairman, Assembly Member Dismore has summarised in a minute a very complicated issue.  Actually, it is even more complicated than he suggests.  I am very happy to do what we can to make sure that we win the trust and confidence of Londoners.  Val Shawcross [Valerie Shawcross CBE, Deputy Mayor for Transport] has already, as you are aware, met with the local campaigners.  I will make sure she does what she can to make sure that local stakeholders feel they have been listened to.


Andrew Dismore (Assembly Member for Barnet and Camden):  We will have further consultation?


Sadiq Khan (Mayor of London):  It is for Val to discuss what else she can do in relation to making sure people are on board.  She has already been to public meetings and met campaigners, but I will speak to Val about the best way to ensure your constituents feel listened to.
