New Euston Road cycle lane set to be REMOVED says TfL Commissioner


Euston Road cycle lane will be removed confirms new Transport for London (TfL) Commissioner.


The news of the scrapped cycle lane came today during a London Assembly Transport Committee meeting with the new TfL Commissioner Andy Byford.

The move comes after recent City Hall claims of rising congestion around the Euston Road cycle lane. The London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, stated that should any severe issues be identified in regards to the new cycle lane, TfL would “evaluate the reasons” and “investigate any possible steps to mitigate”.


The temporary cycle lane on Euston Road was part of the Mayor of London’s and TfL's Streetspace for London plans.

The new protected temporary cycle lane along Euston Road, which could have been in place for 18-months and made permanent, linked up with TfL's new temporary cycle lane on Hampstead Road, and Cycleway 6 on Midland Road/Judd Street.


Last week Commissioner Andy Byford also reassured the capital’s iconic black taxi drivers that they will be factored in when decisions are made on any new road traffic schemes that are applied.


That news came after leader of GLA Conservatives and Chairman of Budget and Audit, Councillor Susan Hall, pleaded for TfL to take into account the important role taxi drivers play within London’s transport network.
