A new cycle route running from Camden to Tottenham Hale is one of six that has been announced by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.

The 8km route would connect the two areas, and cover seven junctions identified as among the 73 with the worst safety records.

Details of the route’s path are still being finalised, however £142million is set to be invested in the new routes.

City Hall expects around 75 percent to be segregated routes on main roads, and 25pc on quieter back streets.

Figures from the Mayor shows that cycling grew by almost 10pc in 2016.

As part of the draft Mayor’s Transport Strategy, City Hall is aiming for 80pc of journeys to be made by foot, bike or public transport in 2041.

Sadiq Khan said: “I’ve committed to invest record amounts in making cycling easier and safer for Londoners, and I’m delighted that work is now beginning on designing the next generation of high-quality cycle routes across the capital.
