London's Cycle Superhighway 1 to be extended following consultation

Construction of CS1, which will run from Tottenham to the City, is due to start in July 2015

The new cycle superhighway which will run through London from Tottenham to the City has been expanded following a positive public response to Transport for London's consultation period.

Among the changes to Cycle Superhighway 1 (CS1) - of which 77 per cent of more than 1,000 respondents were supportive - are greater, area-wide closures of residential streets to through traffic, and an alternative route at the northern end to avoid parts of St Ann's Road.
