Boris breaks ground to begin Cycle Superhighway


CVU welcomed the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson to start the site of the North-South Cycle Superhighway. Rob Simmons, Project Manager Major Schemes, CVU, took the opportunity to explain to the Mayor, what CVU will be carrying out for this high profile route.

In LoHAC PPE, Mr Johnson was at the controls of a JCB at St George’s Circus at the beginning of the scheme, which kicked started the whole project.

“It was a great opportunity to meet the Mayor and for him to see the work CVU will be carrying out. This job is in such a high profile location and the next few months will be challenging but it is a great project to be a part of,” said Chris Constantinou, Project Manager CVU.

The North-South superhighway linking Elephant and Castle and King’s Cross is due to open next April, with its southern section finished by the end of the year. The North-South superhighway will have the capacity for 3,000 cyclists an hour. At present, cyclists travel along the route every two seconds.
