TfL, in consultation with City of London and City of Westminster, is proposing a continuous, largely segregated cycle route between Tower Hill and Acton. The East-West Cycle Superhighway would provide a clear and convenient route for cyclists, physically separated from other vehicles. Tfl would create space for the new cycle route by reallocating road space from other traffic and changing the operation of some junctions.
While not passing through Marylebone, it will pass close by, including Hyde Park and will have an effect on traffic both during and after construction.
The Royal Parks have commented: "It is essential that cycling routes are safe, not just for cyclists, but also for all other people who use the parks, including pedestrians, children, runners and horse riders.
We need to ensure that the preferred route strikes the right balance between access for cyclists and the needs of other park users. We are very keen that a wide range of park users, both cyclists and non-cyclists, respond to the consultation and would like to encourage as many of our visitors as possible to share their knowledge and views."
