“Cycle spending could fall off a cliff,” warned assembly member after quizzing mayor at City Hall…
UPDATED: Mayor of London Sadiq Khan’s office say it is “complete nonsense that the capital’s cycling budget risks being cut – although he acknowledged this morning that the amount of money allocated to it in the coming years can only be determined once Transport for London (TfL) publishes its new business plan later this year, leading one London Assembly member to warn that “cycle spending could fall off a cliff.”
The Labour politician, who replaced Boris Johnson in May this year, was responding to a question from the Green Party’s Caroline Russell at this morning’s Mayor’s Question Time at City Hall.
Ms Russell, elected to the London Assembly in May and an Islington councillor, asked Mr Khan: “Will you keep your cycling funding at £155 million throughout your time as Mayor?”
