Following earlier announcements of capital funding for infrastructure projects, the Government has now announced the allocations of £64m in supporting revenue funding to encourage the use of sustainable transport.
£2bn announced for new roads or bigger junctions - with almost none on cycling. Meanwhile, the Department for Transport has announced £15m for 2015-16 to be spent on cycle rail improvements, typically additional cycle parking at railway stations.
In mid-April, we launched the national Space for Cycling campaign in partnership with Cyclenation groups across the country. Our new interactive map shows where councillors have signed up so far, and Newcastle leads the way, outside London.
On 17 May thousands will be coming out to ride in support of Space for Cycling. With elections just 5 days later, these Big Rides will be a final chance to influence local candidates before the 22nd May elections.
