Thank you for your request received on 22 August 2019, for the following 
information:
 
I am writing to request the answers to the following questions, on the subject 
of cycling within your borough, under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. 

1. What percentage of your borough's total road kilometres consists of fully, 
hard segregated cycle routes? 
2. How many total kilometres of fully, hard segregated cycle routes does this 
equate to? 
3. Since the 6th of May 2010, how much money in pounds sterling has been 
spent from your borough's transport budget on creating further fully, hard 
segregated cycle routes? 
4. In relation to the above question, what percentage of your total transport 
spend within your borough for the named period did this constitute? 
5. For the period between the 1st of April 2016 and the 31st of August 2019, 
how much total money in pounds sterling from your borough's transport 
budget has been or will be allocated to creating further fully, hard segregated 
cycle routes? 
6. For the period mentioned in question 5, what percentage of your borough's 
transport budget does this constitute? 
7. What percentage of road kilometres under your sole control are 20mph 
roads? 
8. Aside from the above mentioned, what other initiatives is your borough 
undertaking to improve the safety of cyclists on roads under your authority? 

In this instance, hard segregation means where there is a kerb separating the 
standard road surface from the cycleway. It does not include shared footpath 
and cyclepath routes where this is no separation between the footway and the 
cycleway. Please only include cycleways that are solely under your council's 
control for this figure. 

Total road kilometres is the distance of standard roads that are accessible to 
motorised vehicles, in addition to the distance of hard-segregated cycleways 
as described in the above paragraph. Please only include roads and cycleways 
that are solely under your council's control in this calculation.
 
We have processed this request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
