The pledged separated cycle superhighways in London have moved considerably closer to reality.
Work began on a 3-mile separated superhighway for cycles from the South (Elephant and Castle) into the North (Kings Cross). Another proposed superhighway would connect Westbourne Grove to Tower Hill (via the Victoria Embankment).
This is just a fraction of a much more ambitious development for an 18-mile linkage from Barking in to Acton.
This is also good news for cyclists and for London for it unlocks new potentials for house hunters and property investors, since hotspots are rising in areas which have organized access to these superhighways.
New cycle parking standards double the prerequisite for new commercial property, at the same time as the mandatory storage amenities for bikes in new residential property have been considerably increased.
It is a great idea to seek bike friendly properties, where cycles can be kept securely both in a modern bike shed in the garden and even in a large hallway.
These latest superhighways for cycles would make commuting by cycle so much safer and easier.
