Max Jack, director of CEPC, which is also responsible for opening and closing park gates every day says Westminster city council “don’t want cycle proposals, they are not keen on cycle routes, and they aren’t very keen on gate closures”.
He said: “Westminster have a way of never being quite clear, you don’t know what they are supporting until the last minute. It was only when the consultation results came back that it became clear there was opposition about traffic displacement [on to Westminster’s roads] and that’s really what’s created the issue.”
