Cycling and cycling infrastructure expenditure

A Tranter made this Freedom of Information request to Thurrock Borough Council as part of a batch sent to 149 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for A Tranter to read recent responses and update the status.

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:

response.

Our Response

 

In issuing our response the council have applied S12 of the Freedom of
Information Act. 

This means that the council does not have to comply with your request if
the cost of doing so exceeds the ‘appropriate limit’, which for local
authorities is 18 hours.  This applies to the time taken spent locating
and collating the requested information.  

 

If you wish to narrow the scope of your request and resubmit this to the
council then of course we may be able to provide this information.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the way in which the council have managed
your FOI request you can pursue an Internal Review by contacting us using
the above email address.  Your request will be considered by the Strategic
Lead for Information Management who will update you with the outcome of
the review. 

 

If you remain unhappy following the outcome of your Internal Review you
may wish to refer your case to the Information Commissioner’s Office
(ICO), details of this organisation can be found at [1]www.ico.org.uk .
Please be advised that the ICO will not consider your case until they have
confirmation that you have already been through the Internal Review stage
with the council.

 

 

Many thanks
