    I'm taking the 'wait and see' policy.

    Fair play though, Ken has a track record of successfully delivering changes and innovations that other politicians shied away from.

    Look at the CG , The Tour de France, etc

    20mph speed limit is no good for me as my commute doubles as my training time, friggin Ken ***Shakes fist****

    I agree that Ken has put some really good measures in place, but this has come as a surprise to the local councils that will have to find the roads and space and the funding to put these cycle measures in place. It could be a bit of blatent electioneering sseing as he is up for re-election in May. He has no real opposition though unless you are a Boris supporter.

    The thought of Boris wielding power in the Capital is really rather horrifying.

    As I have found to my surprise lately, if the road that the route/facility is running on is a 'Red Route' then any funding will come under the duristiction of Transport for London and not that of the borough that the road is in.
