The Cycle Superhighways are part of a plan by Transport for London (TfL) and the Mayor to encourage more people to commute by bike and help ease the city’s congestion, relieve overcrowding on public transport and reduce pollution. The provision of twelve cycle-only lanes, clearly marked blue, aim to increase cycling in London by 400 percent by 2025 compared to 2000 levels. Each route is 10–15 kilometers (six miles) long

AECOM is working on the routes between Lewisham in south east London and Victoria and between Kingston Vale in the south west and Westminster. The company is undertaking feasibility, detailed design and supervision work.

The commission includes designing and supervising the implementation of a host of innovative measures to make commuting by bike a more attractive option. TfL will introduce a range of initiatives including training, a bicycle rental program and bicycle parking.
