A decent summary but just to confuse issues some "superhighways" are on backstreets and many of the first ones were just blue paint.
Essentially this is an unfortunate dichotomy. We just need decent routes that are reasonably direct.
Segregated on main roads or unsegregated on filtered backstreets are both fine.
Paint lines on main roads and unsegregated on rat-runs are both worse than useless. :cry:

Khan was going to outdo Boris with cycling schemes and spend triple? the amount of money. Doesn't seem that's happening.
