LCC says Mayor's cycling projects are too vital to London's transport future to be subject to funding cuts

 

The London Cycling Campaign has condemned the prospect of the cycling budget being cut after the Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR) on 26 June, as discussed recent editions of the Evening Standard and The Times

We're calling for Mayor Boris Johnson to protect his £913 million package of investment in cycling, which he outlined in his Vision for Cycling published earlier this year.

The bulk of the measure proposed in the Vision document, which we have strongly welcomed, require additional funding from central government.

Campaigns Officer Charlie Lloyd said, "How the money is allocated is a matter for the Mayor, and we'll be lobbying hard to make sure he protects his promises to improve conditions for cycling. 

"All the cycling projects he's proposed have very high return on the investment compared with some of the road schemes that are also under considering - cycling facilities are great value for money.

"Furthermore, motor car use is in decline over London and has been for a decade: more and more people are choosing the bicycle and funding for London transport must reflect that." 

The Comprehensive Spending Review is when the Mayor of London tries to persuade the Treasury to fund his future transport plans, with the result expected to be announced on 26 June 2013.
