Mayor says VNEB will be "better than Amsterdam"

Fantastic news from Boris. Those of us planning to attend forthcoming events to ask the people in power whether Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea will become a cycling nirvana can strike that question off the list. Boris said today that the area will be even more cycling friendly than Amsterdam.

 Will the Vauxhall, Nine Elms, Battersea Opportunity Area be as cycling friendly as Amsterdam? 

So the questions to focus on now are:
1. Will this new approach start during the current Mayoralty as it doesn't seem to be in place yet?
2. What are the designs for Nine Elms Lane, the Vauxhall Gyratory etc. that will meet the Mayor's commitment?
