A constituent has asked me to ask what the reasons are for the renaming of all Quietways to Cycleways? Quietways are for both walkers and cyclists and there is concern that this re-branding excludes walkers.

The decision to move to a single brand for London’s cycle network is founded on extensive research with Londoners, including cyclists and non-cyclists. Feedback from Londoners said that they found the Cycle Superhighway and Quietway names misleading and confusing, and that they would prefer a simpler approach to branding London’s cycle network.

Transport for London always sought to improve conditions for walking alongside its investment in cycling, including investment in new crossings and additional pedestrian space. This will continue.
