The Government take cycle safety very seriously. In this Parliament we have committed £278 million of funding directly for cycling in England; this includes junction safety schemes and traffic-free and traffic-calmed routes.

We have also made it easier for local authorities to implement 20 mph zones and other highway measures to support cycle safety, and we encourage them to consider these measures on their highway network.
