London taxi drivers have lost a High Court challenge which could have disrupted completion of Mayor Boris Johnson’s £47m east-west cycle superhighway.
The Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association argued the proposed lanes would take up space, causing disruption.
Transport for London (TfL) argued the plan was “works of improvement” and did not need planning permission.
