A new cycle superhighway is planned to provide a continuous route from Brent Cross to the West End. A consultation sets out Transport for London's proposals for the route from Swiss Cottage southwards, along Avenue Road, the Outer Circle of The Regent’s Park, Park Crescent and Portland Place, ending at the junction with New Cavendish Street where it would link in with the planned Central London Grid.

The consultation is open until 20 March 2016

To the north of Swiss Cottage, the route is proposed to run along Finchley Road and Hendon Way, as far as Brent Cross. TfL is continuing to look at different options for this section of the route, and consultation is planned for a later date, subject to the outcome of further investigations and discussions with stakeholders.

Adelaide Road would become two-way for all traffic with three westbound and three eastbound general traffic lanes.
Finchley Road would become two-way for all traffic with two northbound and three southbound general traffic lanes.
Plus improvements for cyclists at the junction of Finchley Road, College Crescent and Avenue Road.
