In answer to my question 2018/3044 you said that: “over 30 km of protected space across the Quietway and Mini Hollands programme has also been delivered during my Mayoralty.” Could you define what you mean by protected space in this instance?

The definition of protected space used includes full segregation, stepped track and light segregation – anything where cyclists are physically separated from traffic. It doesn’t include streets where people are mixing with traffic, including filtered streets or off-road routes through parks.

However, this is an important part of the network and I’ve introduced new quality criteria to ensure that all parts of the network offer high quality for cycling.
