What do you plan to spend on constructing and installing cycle superhighways, cycle quiet-ways and other cycle routes in the financial year 2020/21?

I am very proud of the progress I have made in improving cycling for Londoners, which includes a significant expansion of the Cycleways network, and recently achieved my pledge to triple the amount of protected space for cyclists since 2016.

Transport for London (TfL) has recently completed construction of schemes including Cycleway 34 between Acton and Wood Lane, and construction is currently underway on a number of significant new routes, including Cycleway 4 from Tower Bridge to Greenwich, and Cycleway 9 at Kew Bridge. In total in 2019/20, TfL will have spent in the region of £140 million supporting cycling in London.

TfL plans to spend £170 million on cycling in 2020/21, with £65 million of that allocated to new Cycleway routes. The pace of delivery will continue at its current rate, with the planned completion of routes including Cycleway 38 between Finsbury Park and Highbury Fields, commencement of construction for a number of new routes including the Cycleway between Barking and Barking Riverside, and a comprehensive programme of smaller high-quality schemes, which will all continue to develop the network over the next financial year.
