Many disabled Londoners are frequent cyclists.  Schemes such as CS9 increase accessibility and inclusivity for all road users, often helping to improve door-to-door access to high streets and shops.  As with all projects of this nature TfL will carefully consider the needs of vulnerable groups or people with disabilities throughout the design process.
