CS11 will provide an important new continuous cycle route from Swiss Cottage to the West End. Significant improvements for both cyclists and pedestrians will be made along the route, with the aim of improving safety and connectivity, encouraging more people to walk and cycle in this part of the city.

Transport for London was due to start construction on the first section of CS11, in July 2018, transforming the traffic-dominated and intimidating Swiss Cottage gyratory. However, it was blocked in doing so by legal action from Westminster City Council.

TfL has, to date, spent £33,591.67 plus VAT in external legal costs in regard to the CS11 judicial review.
