Eurostar has agreed to meet CTC and Mayor of London Boris Johnson’s office to discuss the controversial move to make cyclists dismantle and box up their bikes to travel. But any face-to-face talks will have to take place AFTER the new cycle-carriage policy comes into force this Sunday.
A day after CTC launched its 'Zero stars for Eurostar' campaign calling on the train provider to rethink its proposed new cycle-carriage policy, London Mayor Boris Johnson MP has said he will write to Eurostar urging them not to proceed with the planned changes.
£2bn announced for new roads or bigger junctions - with almost none on cycling. Meanwhile, the Department for Transport has announced £15m for 2015-16 to be spent on cycle rail improvements, typically additional cycle parking at railway stations.
