Question

Further to your answer to MQ2014/3442 - in which you stated that the main focus for the cycle hire scheme would be to expand "within the footprint of the current scheme" - can you confirm that plans to expand the scheme into Bermondsey remain in place following a recent commitment from developers (secured via a 'Section 106' agreement) to provide funding for a Cycle Hire Docking Station in the locality?

TfL remains engaged with all London boroughs regarding intensification and any possible future expansion. Though there are no current plans for further expansion outside the existing scheme area, we would certainly discuss the possibility with the boroughs should sufficient funding become available.

With specific reference to the Bermondsey area, TfL is working with developers in the London Borough of Southwark to identify potential sites for future intensification of the cycle hire scheme. S106 agreements are being used to secure funding and/or land with a view to delivering a docking station.
