Question

Your response to my question 1032/2012 on your road safety budget claimed that getting a precise figure on spending was 'complex'. However, given that both you and your predecessor managed to achieve this in the previous 12 years, including figures in numerous press releases and responses to my questions (e.g. 1365/2010 and 0628/2010), can you now provide me with the TfL figure?

Road safety continues to be a high priority in London in 2012/13. TfL is directly investing in the region of £14 million in road safety schemes, covering a wide-range of projects including: highway engineering schemes; information campaigns; and other important road safety initiatives such as Junior Road Safety Officers and BikeSafe. 

It should also be noted that public realm schemes, traffic signal improvements, development related schemes, resurfacing and general maintenance schemes also provide an opportunity to improve road safety but are not included in the total set out here. In addition, around £9 million was invested by the boroughs through Local Implementation Plans in 2011/12 and it is expected that investment will remain at similar levels.
