A campaigner leading the fight to move the Cycle Superhighway from Narrow Street has written to Boris Johnson asking for action.

The ‘A Street Too Narrow’ petitions circulated by resident Rae Hoffenberg have gathered hundreds of signatures to move the Cycle Superhighways from the conservation area to the nearby A13.

While the mayor’s office says it is an issue for Transport for London, Hoffenberg is hoping cycling fan Johnson will take her concerns about safety and the environment seriously.

Hoffenberg was a catalyst in the redevelopment of the area in the 70s and battled to get the traffic out of Narrow Street and to have it designated as a conservation area.

She told The Docklands: “It seems the traffic is back, but not the fume-belching trucks, but dangerous cyclists who don’t give a damn about mothers trundling, perambulators, joggers and pedestrians from all over the world making their way to Canary Wharf. Cars zigzag their way across the road to avoid cyclists coming against the traffic.

“We are not against cycling but the highway is in the wrong place. The consequences may be dire.”

TfL has said it will continue to monitor the pilot route, which was launched in July.
