On 23 January 2014 the Mayor and Transport for London awarded over £17m to London boroughs so they can make key cycling improvements in their local areas. This is Borough Cycling Programme funding for initiatives such as:

- Cycling Training

- Safer Lorries and Vans and Safer Urban Driving Training

- Cycle Parking – Stations, Residential and On-street

- Cycle to School Partnership Pilots

- Bike-It Plus

- Cycle Grants for Schools

Westminster was awarded £938,000, which was the highest amount given to any borough. The funding will be made available over three years.

Westminster's allocation is the highest of any London borough. The second-highest is Newham, with £905K, and the average  is about £527K.

The money should enable Westminster to continue with its cycle parking and cycle training programmes. I understand that cycle routes are covered by another budget.
