Question

On 11 October 2018 a Mayoral press release stated: "Since becoming Mayor, Sadiq has already delivered 140km of new cycling infrastructure including 100km of new Quietway routes".  Please (a) list the sections of Quietways that you have built since you took office with start and end points and the distances of each, and (b) state your understanding of what the word "built" means on these routes. Does it include actual building, or does it also include signposting?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Quietways Programme has made significant progress during my Mayoralty, with Q1 (Waterloo to Greenwich) Q2 (Bloomsbury to Walthamstow), Q3 (Gladstone Park to Kilburn), Q5 (Oval to Clapham Common), Q6 (Wanstead to Barkingside), Q14 (Southwark to Tower Bridge Road), Q15 (Belgravia to Earls Court) and Q22 (Stratford High Street to Newham Way) now open and many other route sections being completed.

I have provided you with a list below of start and end points of Quietway routes that have had sections constructed since I came into office, along with the combined length in kilometres.

‘Built’ means sections of the route that have been completed and signposted so that they can form part of the Quietway network.
