London Mayor Boris Johnson's proposals for a cycle super corridor across central London are for an east-west cycle corridor along the Embankment, to be created within four years.
It will link up the existing four blue cycle super highways, plus a fifth due to be launched next year.
It is then planned to extend the network still further, with an additional seven routes on the cards, subject to consultation.
