Transport for London are now consulting the public about three options for Cycle Superhighway 5 between Vauxhall Bridge and Belgrave Square.

The three options are:
All three options would connect with a two-way segregated cycle track along the NE side of Bessborough Gardens and across Vauxhall Bridge. This track would extend as far as Regency Street, offering a quiet route into the Victoria Street area.
For further information on the options - and how to respond - please see www.tfl.gov.uk/cs5.
Earlier plans to route the Cycle Superhighway along Vauxhall Bridge Road were abandoned after Westminster objected. The council believed that reallocating space to cyclists would divert motor traffic onto local roads in the area.
When complete, Cycle Superhighway 5 will run between New Cross and Belgrave Square, via Peckham, Camberwell, the Oval and Vauxhall. According to the Mayor of London's Vision for Cycling in London, "the remaining Barclays Superhighways will be complete by 2016."
Belgrave Road, pictured above, is part of the proposed route. Councillor Angela Hooper, a successful candidate in this year's Westminster City Council elections, supported protected space for cycling here when approached as part of the LCC's Space for Cycling campaign.
