To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is the current position in respect of the agreement of the Royal Parks to the Mayor of London’s proposed east–west cycle superhighway; whether there has been any delay to that agreement; and if so, why.

Her Majesty’s Government understands that Transport for London (TfL) is continuing to work with The Royal Parks to agree a suitable alignment for the East-West Cycle Superhighway through St James’s Park.

TfL is also working with The Royal Parks to provide physically separated cycle routes on the roads in Hyde Park. Kerb-segregated cycle tracks are proposed for South Carriage Drive and West Carriage Drive to provide a continuous route for cyclists using the East-West Cycle Superhighway. TfL proposes to upgrade the junctions on these roads to make them safer and more convenient for pedestrians and cyclists. A kerb-segregated cycle track is also being considered for North Carriage Drive.

TfL plans to consult on the Hyde Park proposals later in 2014.
