More than £17m in funding has been awarded to boroughs across London so they can make key cycling improvements in their local areas.

The money, which will be made available over three years, is being given to help boroughs to deliver measures to increase the take up of cycling and make London more easily accessible and safe.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said; “As part of my Cycling Vision, we are engaging in a vast £1bn 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."
