Answered By: 
The Mayor

Will Norman will be London's first full time Walking and Cycling Commissioner. He will work closely with me to deliver my pledge to get more Londoners active by making cycling and walking safer and easier. This includes overseeing the delivery of my Healthy Streets programme, a £2.2bn investment to create a safer, more pleasant London for cyclists and pedestrians, and investing a record budget of £770m on infrastructure and initiatives to promote cycling.
