Work begins on London’s Flagship Cycle Super-highway


Transport for London is transforming Blackfriars Road

Construction of London’s flagship Cycle Superhighway is underway. Once complete the superhighway, which run’s past Barratt London’s Blackfriars Circus development, will stretch from Elephant and Castle to King’s Cross.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson commented “Getting more people on their bikes will reduce pressure on the road, bus and rail networks, cut pollution, and improve life for everyone, whether or not they cycle themselves.”

The Superhighway will create a safe cycle route though St George’s Circus and transform Blackfriars Road into a beautiful tree-lined urban boulevard, with more than 20,000 square feet of new space for pedestrians as well as shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. Work on this section of the highway is anticipated to be complete as early as December 2015.

Councillor Mark Williams, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Planning and Transport at Southwark Council called the Blackfriars Road project a “real milestone for Southwark”.

Barratt London’s Blackfriars Circus development is made up of 336 one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses, with many apartments on the higher floors enjoying fantastic views across London. And with 700 secure cycle spaces, residents will be able to make full use of the Superhighway. Blackfriars Circus also features underground parking, a residents’ fitness suite and a 24-hour concierge service with many of the apartments enjoying private outdoor space.

Anticipated prices at Blackfriars Circus start from £510,000.
