In both 2019/20 and 2020/21, it is estimated that some £600 million will be invested in cycling and walking projects in England, outside London. The majority of this funding will be drawn from wider transport and infrastructure funds, including the Transforming Cities Fund, Local Growth Fund, Housing Infrastructure Fund and Highways Maintenance Fund. In both years, the Department for Transport has also allocated dedicated funding of £20 million to local authorities through the Access Fund, and £13 million for the Bikeability training programme.

Decisions on further funding from 2020/21 onwards will be made at the forthcoming Budget and Spending Review. This will also allocate funding for Conservative Party manifesto commitments, including the £350m Cycle Infrastructure Fund and to expand the Bikeability scheme. The Department does not hold data relating to funding allocated from local funding streams for cycling and walking.
