Central London Cycle Grid

The central London cycling grid will be a set of connected routes for cyclists across central London, with the first phase to be completed in 2016.

For the latest information please visit the TfL Central London cycling grid information page.


Quietways will be a network of routes throughout London linking key destinations.  They will follow quieter routes and be suitable for less confident cyclists who want to use low-traffic routes, while also providing for existing cyclists who want to travel at a more gentle pace.

  • Waterloo to Croydon Quietway
  • Elephant and Castle to Crystal Palace Quietway

Two-way cycling in one-way streets

We want to encourage cycling by making it an attractive transport option to all. The bicycle can be given a major advantage over motorised modes by making cycle access more direct and extensive. Allowing two-way cycling in one-way streets is one way this is achieved, delivering the following benefits for cyclists;

  • improved local access
  • reduced journey distances and times
  • more route choices.

About 40 streets in Lambeth have already been converted from standard one-way streets to, one-way streets that allow legal two-way cycling. There are still about 70 one-way streets in the borough where cyclist cannot legally cycle in both directions. Following the example set by the City of London where all one-way streets allow two-way cycling, we are working to bring two-way cycling to all one-way streets in Lambeth.
