Dear Fazila Nawaz,

Thanks for your reply.

Could you confirm your response indicates that £19,914 has been spent since October 2018 out of the pledged £23,000,000?

To respond to your question "Please confirm your definition of protected cycleway.
Can you also confirm what you mean by WMCA jurisdiction. Are you referring to the WMCA
geographical area or WMCA powers to distribute funds?"

To confirm, a protected cycleway 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)

I am referring to WMCA powers to distribute funds. If WMCA have provided funding but the delivery has been from a local council or other provider, this could also be included.

Yours sincerely,

A Tranter
