Answered By: 
The Mayor

Numbers of cyclists vary throughout the day but, at its peak, around 200 cyclists per hour use each of Oxford Street, Upper Berkeley Street and George Street with around 300 on each of Wigmore Street, Grosvenor and Brook Street. Transport for London and Westminster City Council will consult on proposals for cycling in summer 2018 and will include a high quality cycle provision within the wider district. As well as developing an east-west cycle route as an alternative to Oxford Street itself, plans also include looking at proposing a grid network to make travelling north south easier including connecting into other strategic cycling routes.
