Pop-up cycle lanes on the Euston Road for the Brompton user

The Euston Road is not really somewhere I would choose to cycle on - although many do - as it is just too busy and altogether an unpleasant experience. In fact walking along it isn't that better. Work has alert begun on a pop-up cycle lane that should make things a great deal better!

The eastbound cycle lane will open quite soon in just over a weeks time, with the westbound lane taking longer as there are quite a few bus stops to be moved.

This will almost certainly prove to be hailed as a great thing from cyclists but motorists will probably be less keen to say the least. I think that the Euston Road might actually be the outer limits of the congestion charge zone and reducing the number of lanes of traffic won't be popular.

I can't say I am going to head down to the Euston Road anytime soon but for cyclists who commute in that way it will be a godsend!

Stay safe out there people!!
