Embankment cycle lane “really added to traffic” says Tory mayoral hopeful

By | London | No Comments
Wannabe Conservative mayoral candidate Shaun Bailey this morning said that the cycle super highway on the Embankment hasn’t worked and really increased congestion.
The current member of the Greater London Assembly was answering questions on Nick Ferrari’s LBC breakfast radio show alongside fellow tory candidate hopefuls Andrew Boff and Joy Morrissey.
Bailey went on to say that he wasn’t sure if he would have put the cycle lane in place and raised concerns about the road space it takes up.
He rightly added that protecting cyclists was a must, but the effect cycle lane routes have on London should be looked at.
