The mini-Holland programme aims to significantly reduce suburban car journeys, which the Mayor says are often short and cycleable, and increase the number of journeys made on bike.

Each outer London borough was invited to submit proposals for:

A substantial redesign of the main town centre to make it genuinely excellent for cyclists

Redesigns of some of the secondary town centres

Addressing severance, where this is a problem: new cycle and pedestrian crossings of major roads, railway lines or waterways

A network of good cycle routes radiating out from the main town centre, and secondary centres to other parts of the borough, paralleling all the main local travel routes. Redesigns of problem junctions used by cyclists

At least one good commuter route from the borough to central London

Cycle superhubs at local railway stations
