3.4% of London residents cycle five times every week (DfT). 34% of London residents use public transport every day (LSE). In Ealing, this computes as 11,600 cyclists and 116,00 public transport users. In heavily built-up areas Transport for London (TfL) and Ealing Council seem determined to spend £millions on segregated cycle lanes whose existence in many places degrades public bus services. Ealing Council in 2018 announced that the increase in cycling use from 2013/14 to 2016/17 was a modest 2.4%. We review the projected cycling-driven £19 million spend along and alongside the W5/W13 Uxbridge Road traverse (TfL’s Liveable Neighbourhoods).
