Our work.

On behalf of Transport for London, ICM Unlimited carried out 1000 telephone interviews with residents in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) to understand their attitudes to protected cycle lanes and travel behaviour in the local area.

Key findings include:

  • The majority of residents (70%) are in favour of measures to make cycle routes in the area safer.
  • The majority also support the introduction of protected cycle lanes on main roads in RBKC (59%) including Kensington High Street (56%).
  • Age and proximity to the High Street are important factors affecting support for the introduction of protected cycle lanes on the High Street, with residents aged under 40 significantly more likely to be in support and those living 0-1 miles from the High Street showing the most opposition.

Data tables can be found here: Cycling Survey in RBKC – Weighted Data Tables v2
