Cycling Infrastructure Database to make cycling in London easier

A new Cycling Infrastructure Database – said to be the largest in the world – has been created for London to enable more people to turn to two wheels.

The report says local authorities face berries when trying to implement cycling and walking programmes.

The database contains the details of all 240,000 pieces of cycling infrastructure in London, such as cycle parking spaces and cycle lanes

Introduced by Transport for London as it reports that the number of people cycling in the Capital continues to increase year on year, the Cycling Infrastructure Database contains the location of more than 240,000 pieces of cycling infrastructure in London, including places to park and the location of cycle lanes; thus making it easier for people in London to plan their journeys.

Will Norman, London’s walking and cycling commissioner, said: “Last year London saw the quickest growth in cycling journeys on record, but we must continue to do everything we can to make cycling easy and convenient for everyone. TfL’s Cycling Infrastructure Database is the biggest collection of cycling information anywhere in the world, and has the potential to transform the way we think about cycling.

“It means that wherever you live or work in the capital you can properly plan your journey from beginning to end, knowing the quickest and safest route through every London neighbourhood.”
