Two-mile cycle superhighway extension opens

An extension of a cycle superhighway in east London has been officially opened, a day after a cyclist was killed on the route.

The route from Aldgate to Bow has been extended by nearly two miles into Stratford. The new section is segregated from traffic.

On Tuesday a 62-year-old cyclist was killed in a crash with a tipper truck on Mile End Road.
