According to an article published today by the BBC News, Transport for London is offering £4M to London’s outer boroughs to develop bicycling programs and infrastructure. 13 Boroughs will compete for the funds that will be available over the next 3 years. Among others, possible uses for the funds include bicycle parking, awareness training for lorry drivers, and new bike routes.
From the article:
Ben Plowden, TfL’s director of better routes and places, said: “Biking Boroughs aims to introduce simple, locally focused solutions that encourage residents to consider, for each journey, whether a bike could be used.
“Thousands of short trips made in outer London every day have the potential to be cycled, which is why we will be working with 13 boroughs to pave the way to encouraging a shift to two wheels.”
