Budget bonus for Capital's cyclists
George Osborne, Chancellor of the Exchequer, has allocated £15m in his 2012 Budget to improve safety for cyclists at some of London's most dangerous junctions (BBC News).
While Transport for London (TfL) welcomed the additional funding, the London Cycling Campaign said it was “not enough money”.
Charlie Lloyd, from the London Cycling Campaign, said: “It’s a good gesture showing people are taking cycling seriously and it will add to the urgency of doing something about the most dangerous junctions.
“But we need to invest more to ensure London is an attractive city for cyclists and pedestrians.”
The Government says that details of how and where the money will be invested will be announced in the summer.
