Dear Wandsworth Borough Council,

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 2014 and the 31st of
March 2015, 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.

Please email your responses in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet within
20 working days of this request being submitted, that is to say by
the 28th of February 2014.

Yours faithfully,

Will Nickell

With regard to your questions 1-6, this work is the responsibility of

routes, all on their ‘red routes’.  Please contact them for this
information via their website below:-

7.       What percentage of road kilometres under your sole control are
20mph roads?

We do not have this expressed as a percentage of the Council-controlled
road network; attached is a map which shows the areas controlled by the
20mph limit.

 

8.       Aside from the above mentioned, what other initiatives is your
borough undertaking to improve the safety of cyclists on roads under your
authority?

Cycle training courses are available, free of charge, to children and
adults who live, work, or go to school or college in Wandsworth. Courses
can be tailored for special needs. Child cycle courses are run during term
time and school holidays and Adult cycle training is either carried out at
a convenient time for the trainee, usually evenings or at weekends
throughout the year or as part of a group training session.  All our
courses are run by National Standards approved, trained and experienced
instructors.  More information regarding Council cycle training is
available on the Council website, see the link below:-
