It was announced yesterday by Boris Johnson that route 3 & 7 would be finished on the 19th of July 2010. With only a few weeks left to go before they open, there is a noticeable increase in the work that is going on with route 7. Before there where only 2 test junctions, then 3, and now they are painting the blue lanes all along the route from Tooting to Colliers wood. Some of it is great but at the junctions where it matters most, it is lacking in design and continues to put cyclists in the gutter.
On of my videos has been featured on several blogs and news sites, mostly bike related (Bikeradar.com, road.cc and Dave Hills London blog at the Guardian). But with Boris’ news yesterday it seems that more people are latching on to news and giving me and my videos publicity. Thats great and i hope that the more coverage this gets the more likely a decent outcome happens.
Today it was featured on the Guardian Bike Blog and in the CTC news letter cycleclips. This meant that today alone I got more than 2,500 views on that one video, making the total now over 7,000 views in a month.
Below are some other videos on the super highway, showing the latest additions to the layout.
