Broken down by borough, how many additional cycling hoops has TfL financed every year over the last five years?

Transport for London (TfL) supplies significant funding to the London boroughs every year to deliver the Mayor’s Transport Strategy, including providing cycle parking. During the period 2014/15 to 2018/19, the boroughs have reported delivery of over 17,500 cycle parking spaces, which are displayed broken down by year and borough on the accompanying spreadsheet. Note that these are not figures for a specific type of cycle parking. Boroughs use a number of mechanisms to deliver cycle parking, including requiring off-street cycle parking as part of new developments. This therefore is only a partial figure for all cycle parking delivered over this time period.

This year, as part of the Cycle Parking Implementation Plan, TfL is committing an additional £2.5m for cycle parking and is actively working with the boroughs to fund delivery across London, including at town centres and train stations.

In addition to this extra help for new cycle parking, TfL has launched the Cycling Infrastructure Database (CID) to map all of the capital’s cycling infrastructure. The database enables TfL to identify areas of highest demand across London and to direct investment accordingly. It suggests around 146,000 cycle parking spaces exist across London.
