Londons mayor has acknowledged business community worries about his flagship scheme that were questioned by his cycling policy adviser
Last weeks release of Transport for London data estimating the effects on other road-users of Boris Johnsons most ambitious cycle superhighway plan was accompanied by a conciliatory message from the mayor. He stressed that the design is by no means set in stone and that we will work hard with all parties to improve [it] in order to get the right result for London.
Johnsons overture was to an important audience – his natural allies in Londons business community and the City who had complained that essential information about the superhighways possible effects on Londons economy, traffic levels and pedestrians had not been supplied. It appears that these things trouble Johnson too. Business sources (as they say) have reported that when he digested the TfL data he went mad.
