London becomes Europe’s gridlock capital
The FT contradicts itself a bit here I think:
The works-traffic is being compounded by large construction projects, many of them residential, such as those at the Nine Elms area in south-west London and Elephant and Castle, a symbol of the rampant property market in the capital.
More capacity is also being taken up by cycling, the fastest growing form of road use in London. Several “cycle superhighways” are being constructed in the capital to provide segregated lanes for cyclists.
All those cyclists taking up space, eh? How did they travel before they cycled? Helicopter? Should we put them in cars? Tsk.
