Green the Redways: Copenhagenize the TfL Transport for London Road Network TLRN
TfL should Copenhagenize London’s the TLRN (Transport for London Road Network. Copenhagenization means confiscating the warships of a defeated enemy, which is what the British did in 1807. Mikael Colville-Andersen uses ‘Copenhagenize’ to mean good cycle planning. I’ve been reading his book and wish the TfL board would read it too. The left below diagram should be applied to London by converting the TLRN from ‘Red Routes’ to ‘Red and Green Routes’, as as TfL did to the Embankment Section of CS3. Putting segregated cycle paths in both directions would make it a Red-Green Network.
One million dots. London has 1 mile of cycle superhighway for each 1,170,000 people. Copenhagen (shown by green dots) has 1 mile of segregated cycle path for each 1,943 citizens
