Timothy Straker QC and Phillip Patterson have been instructed by Transport for London (TfL) in relation to the judicial review of the much-publicised East-West Cycle Superhighway brought by the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association (LTDA). The Cycle Superhighway scheme is seen as an important step in improving conditions for cyclists using London’s road and in reducing deaths and serious injuries among cyclists in the capital.

The LTDA argues that the construction of the project has been carried out without the necessary planning permission. Straker and Patterson will argue that the project did not require planning permission and that the proceedings ought not have been brought against TfL in any event.

The LTDA was granted permission and the substantive matter is listed for hearing in January 2016.
