TfL Press Release – Euston Road temporary cycle lane construction set to begin as Mayor’s world-leading Streetspace plans continue


  • Construction will start this week on a landmark new temporary cycle lane on Euston Road
  • More than £24m awarded to boroughs across London for walking and cycling schemes
  • Part of the Mayor and TfL’s Streetspace for London plans to enable walking and cycling in the capital

Construction will start this week on a brand new temporary cycle lane on Euston Road as part of the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and TfL’s world-leading Streetspace for London plans to rapidly transform streets to accommodate a possible ten-fold increase in cycling and five-fold increase in walking.

The major new protected temporary cycle lane along Euston Road will transform the key corridor for cycling between TfL’s new temporary cycle lane on Hampstead Road, and Cycleway 6 on Midland Road/Judd Street. Construction of the new route will begin on Thursday and use temporary materials to connect businesses and major rail terminals along the road by means of a safe, protected cycle lane. ​

The work follows the recent construction of major new lanes using temporary materials along Park Lane in central London, and on the CS8 route between Chelsea Bridge and Lambeth Bridge. Many more such lanes are set to be rapidly deployed across the capital, with construction work to start in the coming weeks on an upgraded, protected lane along the CS7 route in Tooting and Balham. Design work is also continuing at pace on routes between Mile End and Westferry and between Greenwich and Woolwich, which connect key destinations across east London to London’s strategic cycling network.”
