Crap cycling in Croydon

“We were told repeatedly there was no money available to invest in cycling.

"These figures tell a different story, and show that councillors and senior managers have failed in the last four years to properly scrutinise and manage cycling projects.

“Croydon Council bid for a seemingly impressive £2.235m, but this was eclipsed by Camden, who drew up plans to spend £7.294m.

"In effect, Croydon applied for just 30 per cent of the project values that Camden had in mind.

“If you want to cycle through the centre of Croydon legally and safely, you cannot do it.”
