  1. Fat chance of Westminster Council ever doing anything to impede car usage, they don’t even have a 20mph speed limit like most boroughs…

  2. I suppose journalists coming here and starting discussions THEN turning our comments into shoddy articles is better than just nicking the comments, eh u/TimesandSundayTimes ?

  3. Is this honestly suggesting turning 6 road lanes(3 each way) into 2 bus lanes and a 2 way cycle lane?

    But either way I just dont get there all the space goes, 4 lanes of roads are removed and then it’s like 2.5 lanes of space is used for the pavement and cycle path.

    It’s also an A road(and one of the main east-west routes) and links onto the A40 a minute up the road which takes you way past west London out to wales. I don’t get what happens at the point where you have 4-6 lanes of heavy traffic coming from far west and then suddenly it turns into buses only?

    I’m all for heavy pedestrianisation but this is a pretty bad example and not in the top 10 places that need it imo. It’s also in an area with very wide pavements on both sides already and it’s pretty much the border of zones 1 and 2.

    I think it would be awesome to have a cycle route along the whole stretch though but it should go the embankment route and take away 1 lane from the traffic and turn it into a cycle lane which will still be as big as the one in the photo. It’ll be just like the embankment cycle lane which is probably the best cycle lane in any city in the country so it’s definitely good and any cyclist will be happy with it. The lane that gets removed can swap directions at the mid point I guess.

    Places like Oxford Street and the entire of Soho should be higher priority and will benefit more pedestrians. Those have tiny pavements and/or very over capacity pavements.
