Spotted in the Evening Standard, last Tuesday – 2nd August, though doesn’t appear to be online  ..

“SADIQ KHAN has reassured the Royal National Institute ofthe Blind that building a cycle superhighway beside its headquarters will not put its members at risk. The Mayor has written to the charity after concerns were raised aboutJudd Street being used as parl of the route for the extension of the North-South superhighway to King’s Cross. Transport for London will announce in the autumn how it plans to proceed. Mr Khan has not given the go-ahead but said the superhighway would make a “big difference”. He said: “I’ve asked TfL to look very carefully at issues raised by the public.”

The RNIB said TfL has not addressed RNIB’s concerns about how the dramatic increase of cycling on Judd Street will impact upon blind and sighted pedestrians. ”
