Cycle Superhighway

A marketing term commonly used by British local authorities to promote new cycle infrastructure, and not necessarily of good quality. First used in London to describe blue paint on busy roads, the phrase has spread throughout the UK and has been used in other cities with infrastructure of varying quality.

The latest generation (2016) of 'Superhighways' in London are however of a superior quality, generally 4m wide (bi-directional) and kerb-protected.
