Answered By:

My cycling and road safety programmes are well underway, which is indeed evident by how many are now visibly being delivered across the Capital.

There is actually £8m set aside within my overall cycling budget of £913m for an ambitious superhubs programme to deliver a facility for thousands of bicycles at a central London station, and a number of smaller hubs at suburban stations.

Feasibility work has taken place to identify a suitable location and inform potential design options for a superhub to accommodate large scale of cycle at Waterloo, and TfL is in discussion with network rail and the relevant landowners to discuss options.

Project delivery work has also commenced at a number of the outer London stations and I have every confidence that the full £8m allocated to this programme will be spent.
