Is it new? Would it unlock things?
Is it useful? Would it solve an important problem?
Is it feasible? Would it be easy to realise?



Setting up pop-up lanes on the most dangerous streets in London Zone 1 that are busy high streets such as Old Street, Clerkenwell and Theobalds Roads, Moorgate, Holborn, City Road and many more.

Inspirations: the many current tactical urbanism projects in the USA such as the pop-up lanes in Macon or Minneapolis.


To prove the adage again ‘If you build them (at the right place), they will ride’. People won’t travel extra distance to get to a semi-safe cycle-highways, because the convenience has already been lost by doing so. Therefore it is a priority to make our high streets safer. To show it is possible to improve our infrastructure fast and at low-cost.

For whom

For planners ans politicians so they have the evidence on how to invest first the £770 million secured by the Mayor of London.
