Cycling

Question reference: 121 / 2012
Assembly Member: Navin Shah
Date: February 2012
Question: There have been a number of complaints from my constituents about congestion. There are too many parked cars on the road which makes it difficult for motorists and cyclists to navigate the road. There are many instances where cars drive in cycle lanes. Do you have any suggestions or plans to help ease this problem which discourages people to cycle?
Answered: Answered
Written response from the Mayor:

TfL is committed to making London a cycling friendly city and is doing so through a variety of measures including awareness raising and training, way finding and travel information as well as the provision of cycling specific infrastructure, such as cycle lanes.
Some of the cycle lanes on London's roads are advisory lanes. These have a dashed white line and cars are permitted to enter them when it is unavoidable and they are not being used by a cyclist. Parking is sometimes permitted in these lanes at certain times of day if there are no parking restrictions in place. TfL takes enforcement action against illegal parking on the TLRN and the boroughs are responsible for enforcement on their roads.
Where mandatory cycle lanes are in place (these are marked with a solid white line), vehicles can be and are fined by the police for entering them.
During the last three months TfL has also been conducting a 'Look Out for Cyclists' road safety education campaign. This is aimed at drivers and aims to encourage them to give space to cyclists at junctions and when passing them, and to take more care when opening their car doors and before turning left or right.
I am confident that the impact of such measures and continued emphasis on the need for all road users to act responsibly will improve the situation you describe.
