To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to the Government Response to Call for Evidence Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy: Safety Review,published in November 2018, what steps he is taking to clarify local authorities’ powers relating to civil enforcement of mandatory cycle lanes by bringing into effect the relevant provisions of Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004.

The Government has no current plans to commence provisions in Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 that would allow local authorities in England outside London to enforce moving traffic offences.

Local authorities may already enforce parking restrictions in mandatory cycle lanes.

The Department for Transport will be clarifying the restrictions associated with mandatory cycle lanes as part of its work to update the Traffic Signs Manual and review the Highway Code.
