Dear Haringey 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

Baker Richard, Haringey Borough Council

My response is as follows:

 

1.    0%

5.    Our Highways Works Plan for 2014/15 has yet to be finalised and as a

there is a possibility of integrating hard segregated cycle routes into
our future schemes, we will consider this in line with the Mayor’s Vision
for Cycling   

6.    N/A

7.    42.8% of all road kilometres in the borough are 20mph roads

8.    Haringey Council is a Biking Borough and is committed to raising the
profile of cycling and making cycling safer for everyone who uses its
roads and has taken the following initiatives to improve the safety of
cyclists:

·                     We have put all Haringey staff who currently drive
our vehicles through the Safe Urban Driving course.  The course is
designed to help drivers better sympathise with cyclists on our roads.  We
are now looking to deliver the same course to all Veolia drivers

·                     Haringey Council has recently achieved FORS Bronze
status which means that we are committed to using the latest features on
our vehicles to help make our roads safer for cyclists.

·                     We offer free cycle training to all Years 5 and 6
pupils within the Wood Green hub.  We also support cycle training for
individuals who live, work or study in the borough.

·                     We have regular meetings with the Haringey Cycling
Campaign (HCC) and consult them prior to carrying out any infrastructure
improvements to ensure that the needs of cyclists are met

·                     We are currently working with Transport for London
(TfL) to finalise the route of the proposed cycle superhighway 1

·                     Haringey Council has hosted a number of British
Cycling Sky rides.  As part of this partnership with British Cycling over
20 Haringey residents have trained as ride leaders and route planners.
