The Waterlink Way, a traffic-free cycle route in the London Borough of Lewisham which is also part of the National Cycle Network.

This article provides a list of cycle routes in the Greater London area that have been waymarked with formal numbered route signage.

The routes include Cycle Superhighways, Quietways and the older London Cycle Network Plus, all designated by local government body Transport for London (TfL), and National Cycle Network routes designated by sustainable transport charity Sustrans.

Note: not all these routes are dedicated 'traffic free' cycle tracks: most of them also include ordinary roads shared with motor traffic and footpaths shared with pedestrians.

National and international routes

Route number design for NCN routes. Unlike local or regional routes, NCN routes use a red background.

National Cycle Network routes

The sustainable transport charity Sustrans describe their National Cycle Network (NCN) as "a network of safe traffic-free paths and quiet on-road cycling" that "criss-cross the country, linking up villages, towns and cities".[1] Several of these NCN routes pass through London. NCN routes are signed with white lettering on a blue background, with route numbers having a red background.[2]

Additionally, some portions of these NCN routes have also been co-opted by the European Cyclists' Federation as forming part of their international EuroVelo network:

Cycle Superhighways

London's Cycle Superhighways are a set of Bike freeways, aimed principally at commuters and more experienced cyclists, providing faster and more direct radial routes between outer and central London.[6] In addition to dedicated route signage they are indicated on the ground by distinctive sky blue painted lanes.

History

London's Cycle Superhighways were first announced in 2008 by Mayor Ken Livingstone.[7] The original proposal consisted of 12 radial routes, with route numbers in 'clock face' fashion.[8] Although the scheme is coordinated centrally by TfL, it is implemented on the ground by London boroughs. This has led to several changes as the roll out continues, including cancellation of the original CS6 and CS12 routes[9] and addition of two 'North-South' and 'East-West' routes through central London, the latter dubbed the "Crossrail for Bikes".

Cycle Superhighway Routes

As of June 2018, TfL's website lists eight Cycle Superhighway routes.

List of completed routes:
Name Route Comments Map
CS1 Tottenham to Liverpool Street (A10) Was completed in April 2016.[10] map
CS2 Stratford to Aldgate (A118 - A11) Upgrade between Bow and Aldgate was completed in April 2016, with separated cycle tracks replacing cycle lanes along the majority of the route.[11] map
CS3 Barking to Tower Hill (A13 - A1202 - A3211 - Hyde Park - A402 - A4209) map
CS3 East-West[12] Lancaster Gate to Tower Hill Minor finishing works will continue until autumn 2018. Connects with CS3 at Tower Hill.

There are proposals to extend the East-West Cycle Superhighway further westwards to Acton,[13] via a future CS10 route.

As of September 2018, the TfL website lists three more proposed new Cycle Superhighway routes that are progressing through public consultation and implementation by local borough councils.

  • CS4 - Tower Bridge to Greenwich[16]
  • CS9 - Kensington Olympia to Brentford[17]
  • CS11 - Swiss Cottage to the West End[18]

Safety concerns

The initial implementation of the cycle superhighways drew criticism on safety grounds, with poor design at some junctions and insufficient segregation of cyclists from motor traffic. For instance in 2009 the London Cycling Campaign proposed a manifesto concerning safety, cycle priority and junction design along the Superhighways.[19] The former Mayor Boris Johnson declined to sign it, but said that TfL would take stakeholders' views into account.[20]

An unofficial 2012 photo journey with commentary along the super highways is available.[21]

In 2013, fatalities continued to draw criticism in the press, for instance urbanist and author Charles Montgomery, writing in The Guardian, described them as "inherently dangerous pieces of infrastructure... [that lead] cyclists directly into confrontation with other vehicles".[22] The junction at Bow roundabout (CS2) saw three cyclists killed in 2013[23] and the Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales made the decision to block the route from entering Newham on the grounds of cyclists' safety.

In 2015, noting that "around 85% of cyclist accidents happen at junctions", TfL announced several new junction design features that aimed to improve safety.[24]

In 2017 the London coroner called for an urgent review the "slippery" blue paint surface on the cycle superhighways, saying they may pose a death risk to users.[25]

Quietways

Signage for three Quietway cycle routes on Moor Lane.

Unlike Cycle Superhighways which are intended to give cyclists a quicker way around London, Quietways, also promoted by Transport for London,[26] target less confident cyclists who want to use lower traffic routes, whilst also providing for existing cyclists who want to travel at a more gentle pace.

Routes are generally along back-streets, through parks, along waterways or tree-lined streets, and are designed to overcome barriers to cycling such as high volumes of traffic and unsafe crossings. The route numbers are shown in purple on signs and maps.

Quietway Routes

The first Quietway (Q1 from Waterloo to Greenwich) opened in June 2016;[27] the second (Q2 from Bloomsbury to Walthamstow) opened in August 2018.[28] As of August 2018, TfL's website listed twelve Quietway routes that were at least partially complete.[29]

Other Signage for LCN routes including Directions, Destinations and Distances

The London Cycle Network Plus (LCN+) aimed to provide a 900 kilometre network of cycle routes throughout Greater London. It was funded by Transport for London and managed by the LCN+ Project Team at the London Borough of Camden. It was launched in 2001, replacing the earlier London Cycle Network (LCN) project, and wound up in 2010.

Although some LCN routes have been upgraded to TfL's new Quietways and Cycle Superhighways, the majority throughout Greater London still exist and are signposted and/or indicated by carriageway markings (although not all the signage uses route numbers). Where route numbers are used in signs, this is usually the LCN route number, but on some route sections the 'LCN+ link' number has been used on signs. (LCN+ link numbers were usually internal reference numbers used for project management.)[42]

London Cycle Network routes

The LCN route numbering used a radial and orbital scheme, as shown by the groupings in the table below. Some routes were also part of the Sustrans National Cycle Network - these are signposted with route numbers on a red background.[43]

The last edition of the LCN route map to be published was the 5th edition (2004).[44]

London Greenway Network

The London Greenways are collection of schemes that provide walkers and cyclists with a network of routes that improve access to and through green spaces across the Capital. The projects were developed and funded by Transport for London, Sustrans, the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), the London boroughs and a number of other partners. The network incorporates schemes launched through Transport for London's Greenways programme, the Mayor’s London’s Great Outdoors initiative, the 2012 Games Walking and Cycling Routes programme, Sustrans’ Connect2 and National Cycle Network projects.

The Greenways initiative closed in March 2014 and became part of the Transport for London's Quietways programme.

London Greenway Network Routes

No separate numbering system is used for the Greenway Network. Where routes are numbered, they either use National Cycle Network or London Cycle Network numbers. New routes will have Quietway numbers.
