§ Lord Marlesford
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What specific plans they have to extend facilities for cyclists in London.
§ Baroness Hayman
The Government are supporting the London Cycle Network, which is a 2,500 km strategic network of specified routes being developed by 33 London boroughs. Approximately 30 per cent. of the network exists already. While the boroughs' total estimated cost is £67 million, some £45 million is sought through transport policies and programme funding, with additional sources of funding coming from the Traffic Director for London (on red routes) from the Highways Agency (on trunk roads) and the Millennium Commission, as well as from the boroughs themselves. Now in its third year of implementation, the LCN has so far received TPP allocations of £1 0.5 million.
