In the 2012 Budget the Chancellor allocated £15m to fix problem junctions in London. Now another £15m has been found to spend on junctions outside London. The additional funding is a testament to The Times's 'Cities fit for cycling' campaign in the spring.
The Minister in charge of cycling issues, Norman Baker MP, said that the fund will be used to support improvements to junctions with poor safety records. The Department will work with local authorities and the Cycling Stakeholder Forum, on which CTC is represented, to identify the major junctions.
This fund will provide capital support to improve safety at junctions identified as having a record of road incidents that have resulted in cyclists being killed or seriously injured."
