Dismore proposes further consultation on CS11

At today’s Mayor’s Question Time Andrew Dismore AM, Labour London Assembly Member for Barnet  and Camden asked London Mayor Sadiq Khan if he would hold a further consultation  on CS11. (video here)

Mr Dismore asked the Mayor:

‘Can I ask you about Cycle Superhighway 11? This has proved to be very controversial and divisive locally, with thousands of responses for and against. You have told TfL to continue work on CS11which I support; but there are still many issues to be worked through, such as the effect on bus services, relocated stops and traffic at Swiss Cottage, the Regents Park gate closures, and the impact when combined with HS2 construction traffic.

Once TfL have firmed up their plans, will you arrange a further short period of consultation so the public can comment on the detail?’

In his response, the Mayor confirmed it was a very complex issue, and that he would discuss with Transport Deputy Mayor Val Shawcross the details to make sure my constituent’s views are fully taken into account.

After Question Time Mr Dismore said:

“I am pleased the Mayor recognised that there are many complex issues involved and that the work to answer local people’s views are fully included as the plans develop. I believe it is important that TfL get this scheme right with appropriate modifications to the original scheme, in light of the public’s responses. I will continue to discuss local concerns with Deputy Mayor Shawcross to make sure we get the best scheme possible for CS11.”
