Answered By: 
The Mayor

We are fully committed to spending the entire Cycle Superhighways budget. Construction is underway on both the East-West and North-South Cycle Superhighways, and on Cycle Superhighways 1, 2 and 5, as well as upgrades to Cycle Superhighway 3, all of which are scheduled for completion in 2016. We received over 20,000 responses to our public consultations held in 2014/15, and every effort has been made to deliver the standard of cycle provision that Londoner's expect. This has meant spending longer on the design phase for some routes, resulting in some construction spend moving into 2015/16.
