It's more worrying that marco thinks there are car lanes in London.

That looks quite scary.

Far less scary than cycling in traffic.

It's been very busy. A complete success I would say.

Hopefully there will be more of them.

I've used it a couple of times - I think its great.

I did see a van driver who had somehow managed to enter the cycle highway just by City Thameslink - not quite sure how he managed to end up in there but he was getting a telling off from one of the TfL advisor people.

The one in St Georges Road however is not being used as it is quicker to go down London road -the traffic is bad and as mentioned with 3 schools along that road I dread to think what the pollution levels are like.

St georges road will be a great deal more useful once connected to Westminster Bridge

but not good for the kids who will still have to endure the increased pollution the cycle lane has caused

The cars cause the pollution, not the cycle lane. Also, the traffic is worse in the area because of E&C, not the bike lanes.

As the Council pointed out to TfL two years ago
