London is getting four new cycle highways (east-west, north-south, CS1 and the inner section of CS5) as well as upgrades to the existing routes. The new routes will span nine boroughs and are expected to be finished by the end of 2016.

They’ll cost around £160 million to install, but are expected to treble the number of cycle journeys that take place in the city over the next ten years.
