Transport for London are currently consulting on major improvements to Cycle Superhighway Route 2 (CS2) between Aldgate and Bow roundabout. These proposals feature segregated cycle tracks and junctions redesigned to separate cyclists from motor vehicles and will need your support if they are to go ahead.
Take action to tell Transport for London that you want to make CS2 safer and more inviting so that everybody feels able to cycle.
Notification of roadworks at this junction from 20 October for six weeks.

Cable Street junction with Cannon Street Road
Transport for London (TfL) has appointed CVU (Colas, Volkerhighways and URS) to replace the traffic lights at the junction of Cable Street with Cannon Street Road. Works will be taking place on the footway and carriageway.
Great news from TfL, bikes allowed on off-peak DLR trains. It's been a long wait for this!
"Transport for London (TfL) is pleased to announce that, following a successful trial, non-folding bicycles are now permitted on off-peak Docklands Light Railway (DLR) trains on an ongoing basis.
Over 5,000 bikes and their cyclists travelled on the DLR during the trial period, which ran between July 2013 and January 2014. Evidence from their successful carriage has been used to demonstrate that it is appropriate to continue this policy permanently.
Today at 6:00pm, for a 6.30pm start, London Cycling Campaign will mount a peaceful flash protest in response to the four recent cycling deaths in just over a week, and the increasing number of serious cycling injuries. The most recent fatality, a young woman in her mid-20s at Bow roundabout this morning, was the third cyclist to die at this location.
