Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has revealed plans for three more cycle routes in Hackney.
One 3km stretch will link the existing cycle superhighway in Dalston to Lea Bridge Road.
Another route will connect the borough to the Isle of Dogs via Victoria Park, and the Hackney part of Seven Sisters Road will join a new path between Tottenham Hale and Camden.
Khan said: “Encouraging more Londoners to cycle as part of their everyday routine is vital – providing huge benefits to people’s health, cutting congestion and air pollution for every Londoner, and improving quality of life in local neighbourhoods.”
In total, six new routes are in the pipeline across nine London boroughs.
Khan has set a target of 80 per cent of journeys in the capital being made by foot, bike or public transport by 2041.
London Cycling Campaign’s Fran Graham said: “The Mayor has laudably promised to triple the amount of protected space for cycling during this mayoralty and commence work on a safe, city-wide cycling network that every Londoner can easily access.
“By enabling cycling to become the natural choice for everyday journeys, this network will play a pivotal role in achieving the Mayor’s goal of reducing the over-dependence on motor vehicles that is congesting our city, damaging public health and contributing to climate change.”/ 2 February, 2018
