Cycle Proofing Locations Due by March 2015

The request was successful.

Dear Highways Agency,

I understand that after a request by Mike Penning in 2012 the Highways Agency reviewed 100 locations that were cycle collision hot-spots, of which it prioritised 20 for feasibility study and then took forward £5m of schemes for 13 of them for completion by March 2015.

I have just tried unsuccessfully to find an update on these on your website so would like to ask the following questions and hope to receive data from you to answer them.

1) What were the 100 locations originally given to you for review?
2) Can you share any details of prioritisation within them beyond the top 20?
3) What were the top 20 locations you took into feasibility studies?
4) Can you please share with me the feasibility studies for those 20?
5) Can you also confirm the 13 schemes which went forward for completion and the budget for each of them as part of the £5m.

Many thanks,
Alex Ingram

Dear Alex Ingram

I am writing to confirm that we have now completed our search for the information, which you requested on 25th January.

I attach a spreadsheet giving answers to the majority of your questions. Please note that the figures quoted are not final and may therefore be inaccurate and should not be relied upon. Some figures are estimates for schemes and the totals are likely to fluctuate as construction continues.

As the feasibility studies are quite large files these will follow on subsequent emails.

In keeping with the spirit and effect of the legislation, all information is assumed to be releasable to the public unless exempt. We may therefore be publishing the information you requested, together with any related information that will provide a key to its wider context, via the Gov.uk website.

Most documents supplied by Highways Agency will have been produced by government officials and will be Crown Copyright. Most Crown Copyright information can be re-used under the Open Government Licence (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/o...). For information about OGL and about re-using Crown Copyright information please see The National Archives website - http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/infor....

If you are unhappy with the way we have handled your request you may ask for an internal review. Our internal review process is available at:

If you require a print copy, please phone the Highways Agency Information Line on 0300 123 5000; or e-mail [Highways Agency request email]. You should contact me if you wish to complain.

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
