London’s cycle superhighways are a matter for the Mayor and Transport for London and the Department has not made any assessment of their impact on the number of cyclists.

In his press release of 19 November 2015, the Mayor stated that there had been a 29% increase in the total number of cyclists crossing Vauxhall Bridge in the busiest peak hour since the opening of the superhighway from Oval to Pimlico.
