The routes of two urban cycleways across London have been unveiled.

Seen as “Crossrail for the bike”, the routes offer cyclists protection from other road traffic and are the centrepiece of Mayor Boris Johnson’s £913 million commitment to get more Londoners onto two wheels. 

The north-south route will run for more than three miles from Elephant & Castle in south London to King’s Cross in north London. 

The east-west route will run from Barking east of London to Acton in west London, a distance of over 18 miles, including a section on the Westway flyover, where one lane will be removed to create a segregated cycle track. 

Protected cycle routes will also be created through dangerous junctions, including Tower Hill, Blackfriars, Parliament Square and Lancaster Gate. Connections will be created to cycle routes serving other parts of the City, West End and suburbs. 

Subject to detailed public consultation which began on Wednesday, work will start early next year and the routes will open in March 2016.
