Cycling funding won't turn Birmingham into Amsterdam 'overnight'

Councillor James McKay says Birmingham will not turn into Amsterdam overnight after being awarded £17million to make the city cycle-friendly.

Over the next two years officials want to triple the number of people cycling in the city, create or upgrade 130 miles of cycle routes plus introduce and launch schemes like London's Boris bikes.

Birmingham is one of eight cities to benefit from the Government money. Officials say they want to make safer and more accessible.
