Question

At the London Assembly Transport Committee meeting on 1 March 2018, the Transport for London (TfL) Commissioner said: "I am disappointed to hear that sometimes people are using bus speeds as a reason for not providing decent pedestrian or indeed cycling provision at various locations." Do you agree and, if so, will we see safe, joined-up pedestrian and cycle routes taking priority where bus journey time reliability is also a consideration?

Well-designed improvements for walking and cycling should be complementary to the operation of the bus network. By applying the Healthy Streets Approach and prioritising active, sustainable and efficient modes of transport over private motorised vehicles, we can develop schemes that will benefit walking, cycling and buses.

Using the Healthy Streets Approach, the interface between walking, cycling and buses is now being considered at the start of work on new projects.
