Looks like the cycle superhighway CS2 really is on it's way to Whitechapel Road. This morning I got my first glimpse of the lovely shade of blue that lets drivers know where their soft targets will be congregating.
I can't say that I'm overly impressed mind you. Unless the powers that be are planning on getting rid of the bus lane and turning Whitechapel Road into a single lane road. Here's a snap I took this morning, trying to show how much of the bus lane the cycle superhighway takes up - almost half.
And what happens during the Olympics, if the
special high speed lane for the inner party members Alternative Olympic Route Network lane is in operation? No more cycle superhighway, and cyclists forced to use the single lane with all the cars, Crossrail construction lorries, and buses which have been displaced from their bus lane?
