The five-year Action plan launched by the mayor of London and Transport for London aims to improve the infrastructure making cycling easier, safer and more accessible for everyone. The plan will see cycling journeys double over the next six years. The mayor of London and Transport for London (TfL) have announced a strategy to create a unified, high-quality cycle network across London in a bid to get more people on their bikes. The plan also aims for 70% of Londoners to live within 400 metres of the city-wide cycle network – representing a 28% increase.
This Action plan for cycling comes right after setting London’s first Walking Action Plan last year, targeting an extra million walking trips a day by 2024. This plan is supported by Public Health England (PHE) and has the ambitious vision to make London the most walkable city in the world. With these two action plans, the mayor Sadiq Khan sets out clearly his ambition to increase journeys made via walking, cycling and public transport to 80% by 2041, compared to the present 63%.
