The Labour and Conservatives candidates have agreed to back a cyclists' campaign for a tripling of the length of London's cycle superhighways, introduce a 'mini-Holland' in every borough and to remove dangerous lorries from the streets.
Labour candidate Sadiq Khan said he would keep the Cycle Superhighways "on course" to deliver a "tripling" of the segregated routes' extent, to give every borough a "fair opportunity" to have a mini-Holland-style cycling and walking scheme, and use available powers so that only "the safest lorries become the norm". Conservative candidate Zac Goldsmith also responded that he was "committed to achieving" the three-point agenda put forward by the London Cycling Campaign.
The LCC's CEO Ashok Sinha welcomed the support, saying that frontrunners "don't often make such clear, positive commitments". The pledges came after the candidates from the Liberal Democrats, Green and Women's Equality parties backed the commitments.
