Superhighways to be upgraded after cyclist deaths

The mayor's cycling commissioner Andrew Gilligan has said that there are plans to upgrade the cycle superhighways, after five cyclists were killed in London.

We have already reviewed the superhighways.

As a result of that review, we announced last week that we would substantially upgrade them all, including Cycle Superhighway 2, which will be rebuilt with full or semi segregation along its entire length and five new cycle-signalised junctions, with cycle-specific traffic lights and segregated approaches to separate cyclist movements from traffic movements.

– ANDREW GILLIGAN, CYCLING COMMISSIONER
