Question

Will you instruct MOPAC and TfL to co-ordinate long-term planning for protective barriers on London's river bridges with plans for segregated cycle lanes on some or all of these bridges? Does the Mayor believe that this would be an efficient use of resources, improving safety and security for both cyclists and pedestrians, whilst also raising cycling rates and reducing congestion?

Transport for London and MOPAC are already working together with the Metropolitan Police Service, Home Office, London Councils and my Walking and Cycling Commissioner to determine the permanent plan for protective security on London's bridges. The final decision will ensure the barriers make London's bridges safe spaces for walking and cycling.
