Question

Given that this year's funding for green cycle/walking routes was still less than half the amount bid for, do you agree that a further increase in funding for a network of safe and pleasant routes, including the GOAL proposals put forward by Sustrans, would help to promote sustainable transport in London?

Since 2004/5 funding for walking and cycling has increased from less than £20m to more than £50m today. This has enabled major improvements in the walking and cycling networks. TfL will continue to consider a range of measures necessary to make London a sustainable world city with significantly increased levels of walking and cycling.
