Cycling and cycling infrastructure expenditure

The request was successful.

To Whom it May Concern,

1) Please provide information on how much has been spent on cycling infrastructure in the area you're responsible for, broken down each year for the last 5 available financial years.

Where cycling provision has been provided as part of wider improvement works, these should be listed as cost for the cycling-related improvements, not for the entire project.

2) Please also list the amount spent, sorted by Funding Type/Source (e.g. Capital, Section 106, Central Government funding initiatives), broken down each year for the last 5 available financial years.

3) Please detail how much has been spent, broken down by year, on dedicated segregated cycling infrastructure (only dedicated cycle paths featuring light, full or kerb segregation away from motor vehicles, NOT included on-road painted cycle lanes, shared usage paths or existing re-purposed shared usage infrastructure such as canal towpaths or greenways).

For the avoidance of doubt, segregation refers to the physical separation of cyclists from motorised traffic, and can be provided by the following:
Kerbs
Kerbed plinths AKA Armadillos
Bollards
Soft margins or verges
Crash barriers (Trunk roads)

4) Please detail how many miles of segregated infrastructure has been built in the last 5 years (only dedicated cycle paths featuring light, full or kerb segregation away from motor vehicles, NOT included on-road painted cycle lanes, shared usage paths or existing re-purposed shared usage infrastructure such as canal towpaths or greenways).

For the avoidance of doubt, segregation refers to the physical separation of cyclists from motorised traffic, and can be provided by the following:

There is generally insufficient road width to provide segregated
on-carriageway cycle routes within the Royal Borough.

 

The length of the above route is just 0.1 mile – the scheme is a
contra-flow with segregation around the junction.

 

This concludes your request.
