Answered By: 
The Mayor

Every Local Authority within London undertakes asset management, including cycling facilities, and involve local people and cycling groups in identifying needs and improvements. Cycling facilities are included within routine highway maintenance and inspection. In addition, for cycle routes of strategic importance such as the London Cycling Network (LCN+), defects are addressed as part of that programme. Recently TfL completed a review of cycle facilities on all 4000km of routes recommended for cycling and shown on the London Cycle Guides. This information has been captured on the Geographic Information System (GIS) and will be made available to all London authorities.
