A substantial amount of additional funding is being directed to this programme during the current and next financial years. TfL is planning to divert an additional £1 million from other projects this year, which roughly doubles the money being committed over the next financial two years to £21.m. This funding should be sufficient to complete most, if not all, of the first two priority areas referred to in the response to Q 960 / 2007. Planning for Priority 3 routes (for which funding is also earmarked) will start once Priority 2 schemes are in hand.
