The Mayor of London and Transport for London today announced they have awarded Richmond Council £212,000 for cycling improvements across the borough.

The money, part of a £17m budget which was allocated to all London Councils, will be made available over three years.

The Council has said it will use funds to grow the numbers in Richmond using their bikes by making cycle routes safer, increasing the number of bike racks and expanding the number of training schemes offered.

Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Highways, Cllr Chris Harrison, said:

“The Council welcomes the Mayor of London and Transport for London ’s funding, which will be used to deliver significant cycling improvements across Richmond upon Thames .

“ Richmond is in the top two boroughs in Greater London for the proportion of all journeys taken by bike, and this funding will help us to build on this strong cycling base.”

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, added:

“As part of my Cycling Vision, we are engaging in a vast £1billion programme of improvements to transform cycling in London . Making some of this money available directly to the boroughs will help ensure that cycling developments reach communities across the capital.”
