The Mayor’s Vision for Cycling in London: An Olympic Legacy for all Londoners | GLA | PDF document | 1.7 MB
In this document, published on 7 March 2013, the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, sets out his plans for substantial – eventually transformative – change. “Cycling will not be treated as niche, marginal, or an after-thought, but as what it is: an integral part of the transport network, with the capital spending, road space and traffic planners’ attention benefitting that role”. To realise these plans a commitment to cycle spending totalling £913m over ten years (2013-2022) is made (equating to around £18 per head, per year). The Mayor had appointed Andrew Gilligan as Cycling Commissioner in January 2013 to help draw up policies on meaningful improvements to routes and junctions, and drive them forward and win support for them from other bodies. The Mayor acknowledges that this support is needed.
