Transport in London is devolved to the Mayor of London, and it is for him to consider what, if any, assessment is made of the effects of cycle superhighways on traffic congestion.

The Department for Transport has not made a specific assessment of the effect of cycle superhighways on London’s congestion. Transport for London publishes a number of statistics on journey times and travel trends in its annual report “Travel in London”.
