Hey all,

A lot of you must commute along the Victoria Embankment - Upper Thames St - Lower Thames St. What's your view on what's going to come out at the end of the ongoing construction?

In all fairness, I don't dig it (pun not intended). In places the dedicated bike lane is wide enough to have 3 riders abreast going both directions, but there are places where this narrows to just one bike each direction. For once, no room to overtake. Secondly, it's likely to be similar to Cable street where pedestrians often cross anywhere they like. Thirdly, no more turn towards Trafalgar square or from it.

At the moment I'm thinking I'm going to carry on commuting with the cars. This is in line with the Highway code. Which is, surprisingly, not a law.
