Have your say on the proposed Cycle Superhighway Route One

A consultation has opened for public contributions to the proposed 'Cycle Superhighway' Route 1.
This major new cycle route is proposed to run between Tottenham and the City of London passing through Hackney, Haringey and Islington. The aim is to provide safe journeys for cyclists along an 11km north-south route, running along residential streets away from car and bus traffic.
The proposed route passes right through De Beauvoir, a route which many cyclists already take to avoid the heavy traffic of Kingsland Road.

Transport for London would like to hear from anybody with opinions and thoughts on this proposal. The consultation is open now and runs up to the 29th of March.

There are detailed explanations on TfL's website along with maps and photo visuals of how the route might look.

Councillor James Peters said 'Hackney is the number one borough for cycling in London with more residents cycling to work and more people using bikes than cars. De Beauvoir is at the heart of Hackney cycling and it is important that Transport for London know the views of residents.'

To see the full proposal visit the TfL website.
There is a short online survey which should take only a few minutes to complete.
