Q2. How many total kilometres of fully, hard-segregated cycle routes does this equate to?

Q3. Since the 6th of May 2010, how much money in pounds sterling has been spent from your borough’s transport budget on creating further,  fully, hard-segregated cycle routes?

Q4. In relation to the above question, what percentage of your total transport spend within your borough for the named period did this constitute?

Q5. For the period between the 1st of April 2014 and the 31st of March 2015,  how much total money in pounds sterling from your borough’s transport budget has been, or will be, allocated to creating further,  fully, hard-segregated cycle routes?
