Yes. Transport for London (TfL) has been working with Hackney and Islington Councils on plans to introduce a section of segregated cycle route on Balls Pond Road. Hackney Council undertook a public consultation on proposals last November, and subject to the outcome of this, TfL will work with the Councils to progress to construction.

TfL is also supportive of a number of additional improvements being progressed by Hackney. These include: proposals for a zebra crossing for pedestrians and a parallel crossing for cyclists at Engelfield Road junction with Culford Road and Stamford Road, which is due to be consulted later this year; modal filters introduced last year around Wordsworth Road; and a protected cycle lane on West Bank in which is due to enter construction this year. TfL is also working with Haringey Council on proposed walking and cycling improvements on the section of CS1 that overlaps with the new proposed route between Camden and Tottenham.

Additionally, TfL will be assessing all existing routes against its new Cycling Quality Criteria, and this will include CS1. While I expect that the majority of the existing routes will meet the criteria, there may be sections of routes where change is desirable, and in these locations TfL will consider the feasibility of upgrade work.
