Andrew Burton, Interim Assistant Director of Transport and Parking at the London Borough of Hounslow gave a presentation on cycling plans for the borough at our February meeting.
Some key points from Andrew’s presentation were:
- The infrastructure schemes with funding for 2021-2022
- Other initiatives with benefits for cycling included 20 mph street, School Streets, and Dr Bike workshops.
- The lack of progress in reducing numbers Killed and Seriously Injured on Hounslow’s roads was very disappointing.
- The funding outlook was bleak due to the financial impact of Covid-19 on TfL. Hounslow should hear in March what funding will be available to them
Many thanks to Andrew for giving his time to update us on plans and answer questions from members.
