While Toronto’s busy committing budgetary Seppuku and culling cycling infrastructure in stupid ways, LDN is busy building cycling super highways.

A story drowned out today by the phone hacking scandal is the ongoing expansion of the mayor’s cycling superhighways.

So, as well as blue lanes from Merton to the City (CS7) and Barking to Tower Gateway (CS3), two more have opened from Bow to Aldgate (CS2) and Wandsworth to Westminster (CS8).

These lanes cost about £10m each and if you haven’t seen them they involve blue smoother surfaces and more branding and signage.
