CVU has welcomed the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to break ground at the site of the North-South Cycle Superhighway. Dressed in LoHAC PPE, Mr Johnson took the controls of a JCB at St George’s Circus, officially marking the start of the project.
The North-South Cycle Superhighway linking Elephant and Castle and King’s Cross is due to open next April, with its southern section finished by the end of the year. It will have the capacity for 3,000 cyclists an hour. At present, cyclists travel along the route every two seconds.
