Cycling Facilities Funding
There is a current narrative to the effect that cycling has not been safe. That has some justification. It has certainly got some support, and it has got a little bit of movement and traction. I want to reassure people by providing these segregated cycling lanes, particularly in the cities to which the Deputy refers, and by introducing other measures. Safety is the most important element in the whole transport portfolio. By introducing other measures, upon which I will be making other announcements shortly, I will ensure that cyclist safety is a top priority.
