TfL received 663 responses to the East-West Cycle Superhighway consultation, of which 74% supported or partially supported our proposals. TfL has now published the response to consultation, which is available here.
After considering all responses, TfL intend to proceed with the scheme as set out in the consultation documents. Commuter coach services will be able to use the existing tour bus stop at Westminster Pier. TfL also intends to allow commuter coaches to serve the Banqueting House stop on Whitehall as an alternative, subject to discussions with Westminster City Council. This would provide another nearby option for services affected by the removal of bus and coach stop Y on Victoria Embankment.
Subject to the formal Traffic Order process and receiving relevant approvals, TfL plans to start construction work around the Victoria Embankment / Northumberland Avenue junction in July 2015, with completion for the East-West route planned for spring 2016. Works will be phased to minimise impact on the traffic network and will cater for pedestrians, cyclists and other road users as much as possible.
TfL continues to consider responses for the Hyde Park, St. James’s Park and the Green Park and Lancaster Gate consultations, and they expect to issue an update in summer 2015.
