"Mayor's cycle vision for London, and bus subsidies, face cuts"

Link to Evening Standard

"Transport chiefs are drawing up plans to axe parts of the Mayor’s £913 million cycling revolution over the next decade, amid concerns of government spending cuts of up to 30 per cent.

Plans for a cyclists’ segregated super highway running through central London and major upgrades to road junctions to improve safety could be drastically reduced.

"... Also considered at risk is an extra £1.8 billion on road improvements over the next decade and a £300 million fund to fast-track transport projects that create jobs and homes in deprived areas."

'CROSSRAIL TWO' to Alexandra Palace

"Boris Johnson visited Wimbledon today, to launch a multi-billion pound plan to bring Crossrail 2 to South-West London. He chatted to locals about the second phase of the project, which would see Wimbledon connected to Seven Sisters, via Tooting and Clapham Junction."

Not to mention: 

Transport for London
Consultation opens on proposed routes for Crossrail 2

"The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said:
'Crossrail is set to revolutionise travel in the Capital, and with a predicted 10 million people expected to be living in London by 2031, pressing ahead with the next stage of the plan, Crossrail 2, is quite simply essential.

In order to support this great Capital's bright future, we need to think ahead and not wait until our transport arteries are clogged up and restricting jobs and growth.

That's why I am sending out a rallying cry for the public's support for this consultation - come and share your views so we can progress with Crossrail 2 as soon as possible."
"The consultation will seek the views of people in London and the southeast of England, and will run from 14 May to 2 August 2013."

"The London Assembly today welcomed the launch of a joint consultation by TfL and Network Rail that will examine the case for Crossrail 2.

"The Assembly’s Transport Committee will question transport experts on Crossrail 2 at its next committee meeting (21 May). It will focus on how Crossrail 2 could best meet London’s future transport needs, including tackling growing passenger numbers, the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed routes for Crossrail 2, securing funding and completion dates for the project."
