Questions to the Mayor of London – answered on 9th February 2022.
Freedom of Information requests relating to this aborted road safety campaign show that the Walking and Cycling Commissioner did not sign off the campaign. Why not?
Unfortunately on this occasion the Walking and Cycling Commissioner did not have sight of the campaign before it went live.
Processes are in place to ensure the campaigns are shared during their development and in advance of launch. Regrettably, due to tight timelines and a breakdown in process, this consultation did not happen before the go live for this campaign. TfL has since reviewed its processes for sign off and improved these further with additional opportunities for oversight and input.
