No joking - Bromley (home tto Pete R and others) has just won Liveable Neighbourhoods funding to make the borough better for walking, cycling and living!
Transport for London has agreed to provide up to £10 million to improve travel connections for pedestrians and cyclists to and past Shortlands station from the surrounding area.
Bromley is one of 11 boroughs to have won a share in the second round of TfL’s Liveable Neighbourhoods funding to support area-based walking and cycling projects. In the run-up to Sadiq Khan’s election as mayor, the London Cycling Campaign got him to pledge funding for such programmes, so these Liveable Neighbourhoods are partly down to LCC campaigning and members’ hard work.
Well done to Bromley Council – this is an important first step to bringing major cycling improvements to the borough. And well done to Bromley Cyclists for its constant advocacy, particularly in inviting Will Norman, the mayor’s cycling and walking commissioner.
